A quiet morning in Trafalgar Square.
I never tire of this space.
Whether in black and white or in colour,
there is always a surprise or two waiting.
Did you know?
Trafalgar Square was officially named in 1830 to commemorate
It was intended to be a cultural space for the public to enjoy.
The square was laid between 1829-1841.
The National Gallery was completed in 1838 followed by the
erection of Nelsons Column in 1843.
The Column stands 185 feet high, the statue of Nelson is 17 feet high.
In 1845, the fountains were built followed by the bronze lions in 1867.
In 1876, the Imperial Measures- detailing inches, feet, yards, links, chains,
perches and poles were set into the north terrace wall.
The square has been seen as the centre of national democracy
and protest for 200 years.
Rallies and demonstrations are frequently held at weekends on a range
of political, religious and general issues.
I was lucky enough to enjoy it on a quiet weekday morning :)
