Travellers' tales

By mrswoolybill
I am starting a little series from a well-known London landmark. Thousands of people walk past these WW1 soldiers every day. I wonder how many of you will recognise them.
Thanks for looking,

Well presented, Moira.

Don't spend much time in London now so don't recognise them.
Looks like a station?

King's Cross?
I'm only guessing, don't really have much time for that London. Too damn noisy.

Super framing, excellent mono, Moira. I love the implications of their being blindfolded. Very powerful and impressive.

Strong and emotive sculpture Moira. Last time I was in London was in the '70s, so no idea where this is.

Haven't a clue Moira! Done a Google search and found an image of these, but it doesn't say where they are! Sad An excellent capture though, beautiful mono work Smile

My thanks to Mile for adding his award, and to everyone who has called in here today. I have been busy with meetings. It's interesting that a few people are on the right lines, but nobody has identified the location, tomorrow's may be a bit easier...
