043-2020 – London Wall Place

Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020” is about London Wall Place, where old and new coexist in perfect harmony.

London Wall Place

In this photo you can see the tower of the church of the medieval hospital of the Elsyng Spital. William Elsyng, a London merchant, founded the hospital in 1330 to provide shelter, spiritual and physical care for London’s homeless blind people. A few feet away is the restored ruins of the London Wall, a defensive wall first built by the Romans around Londinium, their strategically important port town on the river Thames in what is now London, England.

Sometimes I feel that the salad tastes better between the ruins of London Wall and the Hospital Elsyng Spital, on a cold winter afternoon.
