Photo du Jour: St. John’s Gate



Taking a picture every day generally means I need to leave my office during the precious daylight hours, so this morning, I wandered around nearby St. John’s Lane in Clerkenwell.

This picture is from inside of the archway of St. John’s Gate. This 16th Century Gatehouse once formed the entry to the Priory of Clerkenwell, but now hosts a museum dedicated to the site’s history.

I hadn’t expected to pick up neighborhood history while doing this, but that seems an inevitability. The Wikipedia links above share an interesting story.
