British Library and Jack the Ripper!

I cannot believe what I saw at the British Library! Take a moment to pour your self a cup of coffee and sit back for this one!! Yesterday I decided to check out the British Library that was only two blocks from my hotel. It was free and I had some time on my hands. This should have been my first stop in London. I got to see one of the original Magna Carta documents from 1215!!! This is the document that helped formed our constitution

I could not take pictures, so I found these online

What an amazing morning to be able to see and read these original documents! WOW!!!! Is all I can say!!

Later I did a Jack the RIpper tour --- In the pouring rain!!! Walked about 20,000 steps --- Another Great day in London

Heading back to Dublin via Train/Ferry on Friday!!
