    London - portrait gallery

    August 20, 2015 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    After the walking tour I wandered around and ended up at the National Portrait Gallery. Lots of past royalty and other people I didn't know. Here's:
    1: a bust of Edward Elgar (I played some of his music)
    2: Darwin
    3: Elizabeth II, in 1969
    4: George V and Queen Mary, huge with super ornate frame
    5: skeletal "gift horse", with stock tickers scrolling across the bow (temp art installation just outside), thought it was interesting
    6: Canada house, on the corner of Trafalgar Square and Pall Mall, monopoly points!
