4 November marks the anniversary of the completion of Nelson’s Column in Trafalgar Square, built in 1840-43 to commemorate the death of Admiral Nelson at the Battle of Trafalgar. The granite column was designed by William Railton and constructed at a cost of £47,000. Four bronze lions designed by Sir Edwin Landseer were added in 1867.

Many more pictures relating to the life and achievements of Admiral Nelson can be found at the Look and Learn picture library.
