There are ten thousand streets in London. When in doubt about how to get to one of them, ask a policeman.

This is St. Paul's Cathedral, built 1675-1710 by Christopher Wren. Inside you can find the tombs of Lord Nelson, the Duke of Wellington, and other great men of England's great past.

Here is The Monument, designed by Wren to commemorate the Great Fire of London in 1666 which destroyed most of the old city.

Nearby is the Billingsgate fish market. Look at the hat, made of leather and wood to carry the heaviest fish.

This is Her Majesty's Royal Fortress and Palace of the Tower of London. Its central keep, the White Tower, was built by William the Conqueror in 1078.

The Tower Ravens.

The City of London has only five thousand inhabitants, but hundreds of thousands work here during the day. Here they are arriving on Monday.
