The Day the Houses of Parliament set on Fire


The Houses of Parliament were on fire in 1834. It is possible that Turner (painter), Constable (painter), and probably Dickens (writer) were all on a street corner watching the place go up in smoke.¬†Imagine those three, as they watch it burn, chatting about who would get a creative work about the fire out first ….

I think Turner won that one.
