View of the Royal Observatory, Greenwich, 1865
A view of the Observatory from the north showing the pines which then flanked the former area of the 'giant steps' and, just visible (left by the flagmast), the original 'drum' dome, built in 1859 to house the 12 3/4-inch Merz telescope, on the Equatorial Building. The quotation is from Matthew 5:14, 'Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid', part of Jesus' sermon on the mount.
