On Sunday we commemorated the 200th Anniversary of the death of Vice Admiral Lord Collingwood, and here is the view of the guns of "The Royal Sovereign" being "fired" as a salute when HMS Cumberland sailed down the river Tyne.
This shot of the Collingwood Monument was taken from The Groyne in South Shields. See this post in my blog for a fuller explanation of the event.
