Trafalgar Square

Standing in the doorway of the National Gallery, with Trafalgar Square visible in the background. The National Gallery was founded during the reign of King William IV, and houses over 2,300 paintings, with some dating from the mid-1200s.

The central column visible behind the group is Nelson's Column. The column was erected to to commemorate Admiral Horatio Nelson's death at the Battle of Trafalgar.
