The Tower of London

OK, we are wrapping up London Week with this picture of the Tower of London. The picture was taken in 1900.


  1. This picture is interesting to me because it gives you a sense of how low-rise London was until relatively recent. The Tower seems like it was more of a visual marker. Today, almost all the photos of the Tower are taken from the river and are more closely cropped to provide the viewer less of a sense of the structure being so out of place in a sea of glass skyscrapers.
