Plymouth Guildhall
"Plymouth Guildhall and Municipal Offices are a credit to the town.
The Guildhall is a notable building, and contains several fine stained
glass windows, portraying events in the history of Plymouth. One of
these shows the King, as Prince of Wales, in a frock coat and top hat,
and is probably unique in this respect."
The Guildhall and Municipal Office survived the first night of the Blitz
in 1941 but were gutted by fire during the night of March 20th/21st.  
They were rebuilt in 1951.

"Plymouth Hoe is one of the grandest promenades in the kingdom,
perhaps in the whole world. There are few that excel it for situation.
From its height, 120 feet above the sea, a wide panorama of views
extends in all directions."
Plymouth, Cattewater and Citadel
"The Cattewater is the ancient roadstead of Plymouth, and forms the
estuary of the River Plym.  It is overlooked by the Citadel and the
Marine Biological Laboratory and Aquarium. The latter is open to the
public daily. A fine marine drive is one of the chief attractions of this
part of Plymouth."
