War, Plague & Fire
They say that one of the signs of ageing is that police officers look like 6th-form schoolboys. I must be getting really ancient, because this photo shows what appears to me to be an 11-year-old schoolgirl. She is Meriel Jeater, Curator of the Museum of London's new gallery War, Plague & Fire (1550s-1660s) which opened this week. Catchy title that. The new gallery covers an area of history from the accession of Elizabeth 1 in 1558 to the Great Fire of 1666. Just what you need to keep the kiddies happy over the Easter holidays.
