One way ticket to the Tower ~ London Olympics
I wanted to go to the Olympics in London until I saw this add. So I will now watch it all on TV at home.
It turns out this is a genuine ad that was used by the London Underground in 1977 and praised by a member of the House of Commons in these words: “It is that kind of imaginative approach which visitors to London find so interesting.”
The original painting by Frank O Salisbury,
Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon before the Papal Legates at Blackfriars in 1529, is at the Palace of Westminster, London, UK.
Painted in 1910, it depicts the King and Queen of England; Henry VIII (1491-1547) King of England; Catherine of Aragon (1485-1536) first wife of Henry VIII; queen protesting against the king’s petition for divorce on 18th June 1529 before Cardinal Wolsey (c.1475-1530).
