Albertopolis – a postcard tour

This is by way of a footnote to my posting dated April 30th. 2008. These postcards of the Albert Memorial form a tribute to this gilded Gothic Revival confection with its riotous ecclesiastical ornamentation. There are two cards that show some of the outlying sculptural groups, one of which offers a rare postcard opportunity to admire an exposed female breast, albeit one carved in stone.
