Item description for London's Monuments: Have Some Fascinating Tales to Tell, from the Decadence of George IV to the Courage of General Wolfe (Metro Guides) by Andrew Kershman...
The monuments of Londonare an incredibly vivid way of exploringEngland's capital cityand its history. For example, the Albert Memorial is both a physical demonstration of one women's grief for the loss of her husband and an embodiment of Victorian Imperial confidence and power. Like many statues in London, it also has a few stories to tell. It was painted black during World War Ifor the official reason that it might act as a navigational tool for German airships, but there is still suspicion that the painting of the monument had more to do with the Teutonic origins of the Prince Regent. With detailed maps and stunning photos, this handbook is a great way to uncover the many tales surroundingmore than250 of London's monuments.
