Traditional windows in the Tower of London's Wakefield Tower, London, UK

Built in 1222-40 by King Henry II, Wakefield Tower's walls were built thicker than the others due to its use of being private apartments for royalty, as well as to guard the water and postern gates of the legendary 'Bloody Tower'.

Edward IV imprisoned King Henry VI in this tower, and was murdered in this tower in May 1471 while praying in the tower's nearby oratory.

Named after the King's Clerk William of Wakefield in 1344. This photo was taken near the medieval throne.

A glorious exposure and those shadows really have the reek of history.
