  1. This was interesting John. I am a huge fan of the Portrait Gallery. I have often said that very time I trace family back to another British reign, I want to see what that new King/Queen was like, hence to the Gallery. I was able to look up and view pictures of an entire history of one of my favourite writers, Alan Bennett, back to the 1960s in comedy to recent portraits. Marvelous. Cheers, BT
