Fire Ravages the Palace of Westminster
16 October 1834
The Palace of Westminster was almost completely destroyed by fire on this day in British history, 16 October 1834. The blaze, which started from overheated chimney flues, spread rapidly throughout the medieval complex and developed into the biggest conflagration to occur in London since the Great Fire of 1666. Westminster Hall and a few other parts of the old Houses of Parliament survived the blaze and were incorporated into the New Palace of Westminster. The painting above was done by J. M. W. Turner, a British Romantic landscape painter who witnessed the blaze.
I’ve been driving a boring car for a year now, and yea it sucks but you adapt and do stupid shit like call it spanky and break the tires loose accelerating in the rain at 60mph and yell “BUILT FORD TOUGH” when you hit potholes/puddles/speedbumps and type run-on sentences describing it.
