First of all a very big thank you for all the C&Cs on 'Closed Door' and especially to CarolG and Ann (EAS) for their much appreciated and highly valued UAs - a perfect end to the working week .
Staying with the Houses of Parliament (Palace of Westminster), this is the statue of Oliver Cromwell (1599 – 1658), First Lord Protector (Republican Head of State) of the Commonwealth of England, Scotland and Ireland (1653 – 1658), which stands outside the Palace.
The bronze statue was sculpted by Hamo Thornycroft, and features Cromwell standing holding a sword and a bible. The bible is marked "Holy Bible 1641", and while the main statue of Cromwell is marked "Hamo Thornycroft 1897", a bronze lion on the base is marked "1899".
