The Old Bailey



The Central Criminal Court, or Old Bailey as it is better known, has a history dating back to the 17th Century, until the 20th Century the condemned were hanged just outside. These figures above the main entrance are bound to have significance, but I'm not sure what it is.

I'm off for a while, as ever the posts should keep rolling.

Your link tells you about the figures: "Over the main entrance to the building figures were placed representing fortitude, the recording angel, and truth, along with the carved inscription, “defend the children of the poor and punish the wrongdoer”."
