Kings Cross Station, 1886. King's Cross was built in 1851–1852 as the London hub of the Great Northern Railway and terminus of the East Coast main line. It took its name from the King's Cross area of London, which was named after a monument to King George IV that was demolished in 1845. Construction was on the site of a fever and smallpox hospital and it replaced a temporary terminus at Maiden Lane that had opened on 7 August 1850. #London #Railway #Trains #Photography #History
#London, #Westminster Abbey, East End Of Henry Vii Chapel 1890. We are looking from Parliament's St Stephen's Entrance. The chapel, at the abbey's east end, was completed in 1512 after ten years of building work. It was to be the Lady Chapel, but it is better known as the burial place of the first Tudor king and his wife. #HistoricLondon
