So I haven’t blogged like I said I would for a couple of weeks. I have been busy lately so really need to find time to sit down and write about one of the topics I said I would! Keeping house is quite a lengthy task it seems, each week I have to do the same tasks as the previous week…
Loved our weekend!! Can’t wait for another :) Hope you find time to update soon, I’ll check back :)
The Great Fire of London began in a bakery on Pudding Lane, on this day in British history, 2 September 1666. The City of London was almost completely destroyed by the four day fire, but was subsequently reconstructed along the same street plan of the old city. Old St. Paul’s Cathedral was among the most famous of the destroyed structures, but it gave way to the modern St. Paul’s designed by Sir Christopher Wren.
The painting above depicts Ludgate in flames, with St. Paul’s Cathedral in the distance. Oil painting by anonymous artist, ca. 1670.
