Armoury, Tower of London

Normally I don't post two at a time, but have for pretty obvious reasons in this instance. I think it's quite interesting all people were removed from the second card. My assumption is the first card is older, and clothing worn by the visitors in the first card became quite dated. This image may have been used into the 30s or 40s, and of course fashion in those decades was not similar to this Edwardian style. Unfortunately neither of these cards is postmarked and there is no other date revealing information on the backs. In fact, the backs are virtually similar save a "T. 4 c." on the second card.
