The Cenotaph, c.1924

Card, posted in April 1924, of the Cenotaph, in Whitehall, London.  Although the British Legion organised its first Poppy Day in 1921, it did not start producing its, now ubiquitous red poppy wreaths until 1924; it appears that white flowers are placed at the base of the monument in this photo.
