WP Challenge – Numbers

This week’s WordPress Challenge is Numbers.

I’ve decided to find photos of a couple of old dates.

The Royal Apartments, Edinburgh Castle

In the Royal Apartments, Edinburgh Castle. 1566 commemorates the birth of James Stuart, Future King James VI of Scotland and I of England. His mother was Mary Queen of Scots who was forced to abdicate the throne the next year and was kept prisoner by Elizabeth I in England until her death in 1587


Lombard Street

Lombard Street, London. The greater population could not read, so businesses used symbols and pictures on their signs. Sir Thomas Gresham was a merchant and provided financial services to the crown (Elizabeth I) Lombard Street was the banking centre for London and the grasshopper, with TG in the middle, was the Gresham symbol and was used as a symbol for a bank.
