101 years ago yesterday

101 years ago today: 11am on Tuesday 11th November 1919, crowds in London observe the very first 2 minute silence for those killed in the Great War. The men have removed their hats out of respect for the fallen.

This is a stunning photo for so many reasons- so many people, so much respect. It has been coloured in by BabelColour who is well worth a follow on Twitter.
