Nelson's Column, Trafalgar Square, London.


1906 Trafalgar Square Underground Station entrance, London. With Nelson's Column just visible through the smog.

The station previously called Charing Cross was renamed Embankment although initially the trains running to tis station still showed Charing Cross as their destination. Confused? You will be! All information credited to the awesome…
