How is the Great Fire of London remembered?
The most literal commemoration came on Sunday, when a wooden replica of 17th-century London was floated in the Thames and set on fire. “The scale model of the old city sat on a barge and stretched more than a football field,” Frank reports. “The flames rose several stories high — and made for a spectacular sight.”
What monument was built after the Great Fire of London?
