Egyptian Avenue, Highgate Cemetery, London.  2011.

Egyptian Avenue, Highgate Cemetery, London. 2011.

A tomb, in the shape of a tower, is to be seen in the churchyard. Now overgrown, it is a picturesque object, but the peculiarity of it is that the body of the person “buried” here a certain William London, in 1809 is contained in a stone-encased coffin, projecting from the tower, half-way up. Legends tell that the descendants of William London, a Scotch merchant, retain the property bequeathed by him so long as he remains “above ground.”

Highgate • London (Karl Marx) - Marx had an alternative dream that I don't agree with, but his dream actually wasn't the main problem, it's what people did with his work that resulted in millions of people being slaughtered. (My condolences if you're a communist and like this man's vision)
