A Distinctive Group
Almost everyone who travels to London puts a visit to Westminster Abbey on their must see list. I can still remember my very first glimpse of this imposing church back in 1985. On a visit there it would be hard to miss Parliament Square situated directly across from the Palace of Westminster (better known as Parliament) and right in front of the Abbey.
So, if you've been there you have no doubt seen the array of distinguished gentlemen who have permanent residence in the square.
There is of course England's most famous Prime Minister, Sir Winston Churchill in his bulky overcoat and leaning on his cane.
Nelson Mandela now has a place of honor on the square. He appears to be in perpetual discussion with those that pass by.
You might be surprised to find Abraham Lincoln standing with this group in his famous Lincolnesque pose.
So, if you are visiting that famous Abbey, be sure you pause and say hello to these fine humanitarians.
