Endurance of memory

This weekend’s WP Photo Challenge is Endurance.

Traitors’ Gate was the gate through which traitors were brought into  the Tower of London via the Thames.  Today there is a memorial on Tower Green, close to the execution site within the Tower where those of high rank were executed out of site of the crowds.

The inscription reads :

‘Gentle visitor pause awhile : where you stand death cut away the light of many days : here jewelled names were broken from the vivid thread of life : may they rest in peace while we walk the generations around their strife and courage : under there restless skies’. Brian Catling
