ABC Wednesday--M

Many marvelous monuments mark the metropolitan London scene.

Victoria Memorial

remembering the Queen Mother

Samuel johnson's cat

Cleopatra's Needle

honoring the contribution of women

lions are good for climbing

Admiral Horatio Nelson
The many memorials of London make for a trip through history, and a great stop for M in the seventh round of Wednesday's ABCs. What other wonders have been found this week? You can see here.

Oh London indeed. Was quite a few years ago we visited, but the sights remain timeless and ever glorious.

Thanks so much

Sam Johnson's CAT? Did he kill lots of mice?

While I admire the beauty of the Victoria Memorial, it is the monument to Hodge that most caught my fancy. I had to google to find out more.

A VERY interesting topic for M day! And some great shots, too!

I knew of the monument to Samuel Johnson's cat, but I didn't remember the cat's name.
I must tell my husband about it, because we plan to "do London" one of these days.

Wonderful! I've never heard of the memorial for women!

I've never seen Hodge before. How lovely and British to have a statue of a cat.
