Abstract

Inscription on verso:
Closely connected with England's history ever since it was built in 1078 by William the Conquerer. The Tower to-day is noted the wide world over for its famous Armouries, Crown Jewels, fearful Prison Chambers, and quaintly dressed Warders, all serving to connect the glories of the past with stern realities of the present.
