  1. The Duke of Waltham

    I love these close-ups… I can clearly see the statues and coats of arms, and I can even read the labels beneath them (that I cannot understand them is irrelevant). Said arms look rather ancient, and in all probability are apocryphal; the Victorians were known for fancifully attributing arms to all sorts of kings and knights, real or mythical, who lived before the dawn of heraldry. (That said, the national arms on the pinnacles are immediately identifiable.)

    I have uploaded the image to the Wikimedia Commons (link).
