Post Nelson Funeral Procession
I was in the Norfolk Nelson Museum a couple of days ago and they have a different exhibition since the last time I was there with items relating to Nelson's funeral. Among them was one print I was particularly taken with, especially for the tiny detail:

Funeral procession of the late Lord Viscount Nelson, from the Admiralty to St Paul's, London, 9th January 1806 by Pugin. I loved the rearing horse at the front of the picture and the tiny little faces of the crowds.

Another item I liked was made by a French POW from Norman Cross of the funeral car with the usual detailed, intricate, work so typical of their skill.
