Notes:

This tower was erected anno 1079, by William the Conqueror, as a keep to a fortress begun by him in the year 1067, to awe the citizens of london; the architect was Gundulph, bishop of Rochester. Fitz Stephens has falsely attributed this edifice to Julias C├Žsar.” (p. 140)

The Tower of London is one of the most famous landmarks of London.

Published in Nov. 1784 by S. Hooper.
