Whittington and Tyler

Active selection in cart:
A gesture of friendship and a gesture of hate in medieval London. Left: Taking the king's promise to repay £60.000 borrowed for fighting the French, Mayor Whittington throws it in the fire. Right: A few years later the gates of London are opened to Wat Tyler, heading the Peasants Revolt, as his army of Kentish labourers crosses London Bridge. Original artwork for both illustrations on p5 of Look and Learn issue no. 69 (11 May 1963).
