Eleanor’s cross

J. Valentine vintage postcard of Charing Cross, London, c.1913.

This is one of London’s busiest spots. The stream of traffic at this point is great and constant. The ornate stone monument is a replica of the original Charing Cross, one of many erected by Edward I , in memory of his Queen, Eleanor. On the right is the grand hotel entrance to Charing Cross Station, the terminus of the South Eastern and Chatham Railway.
