The Friday Photos: War Memorials In London

The centenary of the outbreak of World War One is fast approaching. Officially, the anniversary is this coming Monday — Britain entered the war at 11pm on 4 August 1914 — but we’ve taken this opportunity to share some shots of London’s plentiful war memorials. These aren’t solely for World War One, but in memory of soldiers in all conflicts throughout history.

With thanks to the following photographers for use of their photos via the Londonist Flickr pool: Andy FisherAnthony White, David HoltGábor Hernádi, Jerry ClackmarkdbaynhamMatt Brown, Mike Murphynicnac1000, NyahehSajid Pathan, Terry Moran,
