Sailors in Westminster Abbey.
Hover your mouse over to magnify
Two burly sailors, holding heavy cudgels, stand in Westminster Abbey before Kent’s monument to William Shakespeare with its quotation from The Tempest – ‘The Cloud Capt Towers / the Gorgeous Palaces….. Leave not a Wreck’. One comments to the other that he has never heard of ‘The Cloud’ commanded by Capt Towers and concludes that it must have been French as ‘Cloud’ (St. Cloud) is where Boney lives.
