Credo Buffa - I love your pic of yourself as a Gumby! I adore Monty Python.

And I hadn't realised there is a statue of dear Junkets in the grounds of Guys - have just told my husband that next time we're in London Guys is on the itinerary! We were in Bournemouth a few days ago and found the church where Mary Shelley is buried, along with her husband's heart, her parents, her son and daughter-in-law.

I was in London last week, and while there I visited Bunhill Fields Cemetery, which houses some notable literary graves:

Great photos, Saturn -- thanks for posting!
Who else has visited a cemetery this summer looking for "literary" graves?
Hmm?
Someplace like, oh say, Highgate Cemetery?

Nice photos Saturn.
John....you did not live to see-
who we are because of what you left,
what it is we are in what we make of you.
