Marker for Lady Jane Grey and others in the Chapel of St. Peter ad Vincula in the Tower of London. Photo May 1998.
I thought this would be an appropriate picture for this week since the anniversary of Jane’s (and Guildford’s for that matter) execution is Friday. I took this photo on my first visit to the Tower – May 19, 1998. There were roses on Anne Boleyn’s marker that day since it was the anniversary of her execution and I asked the Beefeater if I could take a photo of them. I don’t know if it was because I looked like a young and clueless American (which I was!) or what, but he said yes. After snapping that photo, I quickly shot this one as well.
