I was working on updating my Wordpress Blog for “The Dragon’s Heart” series (http://thedragonsheart.com/) and I was looking for a picture to go at the top of the page. I settled on one for the Bank of England in the 1890’s, because the update is Chapter 2 of “The Masked Lady” where Madame Vastra and Jenny visit the BOE (yes, it’s a bit behind. It’s my summer project to get it up to date.)
You may remember that the chapter includes a reference to a machine that weighs the gold sovereigns in the BOE. I googled for an image, and not only did I find one, the blasted thing is available on several styles of mugs!
Now I just need to decide which one I want!
I’m working on Chapter Eight of Movin’ On Up. Martini-Henri Rifles, The Childers’ Army Reforms, the Wimbledon Rifle Competition, the Special Branch and the Home Office. Lots of research to cover. Should be updated in another week or two!
