Unceasing stream of pilgrims 1920
Two photographs showing the Unknown Warriors coffin which were the remains of a British service personnel who was killed in World War One, laid to rest in Westminster Abbey, London. Once the ceremony was finished, more than 40, 000 pilgrims came from all over the country, to pay their respects, for three days people who had lost their sons, brothers or fathers in WWI queued outside. When Westminster Abbey closed the doors, thousands of people laid wreaths and flowers at Cenotaph monument, two narrow lines were formed going back to Trafalgar Square.
