12th August – Resilient

During our recent trip to London, I was caught on a traffic island surrounded by lots of different vehicles and I spotted the Royal Exchange.

The building was started in 1566 and there it still stands! It's columns proclaim it's strength and resilience! How marvellous that despite war and the march of modern construction, it remains in the centre of commerce for the city.
