Admiralty Arch, London

After taking a few photos of Buckingham Palace on Saturday morning I was keen to walk to the other end of the Mall, to take pictures of the less famous but still very interesting Admiralty Arch. I am a little disappointed with the photograph as I feel it looks rather grey and dull. The building was designed by Sir Aston Webb and completed in 1912. It was commissioned by King Edward VII in memory of his mother Queen Victoria. The inscription along the top is in Latin but when translated to English it reads…

“In the tenth year of King Edward VII, to Queen Victoria, from most grateful citizens, 1910”

Although I was very impressed with the building, I do feel I need another attempt at getting a good photograph of it. There are always more photos to be taken in and around London.
