Having been to several of the other sites around London, I wanted to check out a different attraction.  This led me to the Museum of London

 

Stuck in the middle of a business area, the museum seemed a bit out of place initially.  Walking in, I was shocked by how big it was.  Greeted by a young lady with the lovely British courteousness, I walked into this free museum and started diving into the depths of London’s vast history.

Talk about old, London before London….

The People’s City, 1850’s – 1940’s.

The pictures do not do it justice.  In hindsight, I should have taken more, but was caught up reading everything.  We all know that London is an old city, built upon wars and triumphs, but really seeing the changes through the years helps you to appreciate the tumultuous history and pride that Britain has for our ancestral country.  From essentially conquering the world, then war, plague and fire, the United Kingdom has lived through the ups and downs that no country wants to experience.

Definitely worth checking out.
