UK1994-Part1-London : The Royal Observatory, Greenwich

Another view up the lawn toward the observatory. The observatory was placed here because it was far enough away from central London that pollution was not as much of a problem; but it was on a hill so that flag signals from the observatory (marking exact times) could be seen from the city.
