Trafalgar Square

This is a view of Trafalgar Square, London, taken from the Nelson Monument, which celebrates Lord Nelson's great naval victory in the Napoleonic Wars. To the right is St. Martin's-in-the-Fields. Its splendid temple front combined with a tower and spire was widely copied in America and in Ireland. St. Martin's is sometimes called the parish church of both the royal family and the lords of the Admiralty.
