The ties that bind

05May11

The National Archives in this afternoon’s glorious sunshine (as seen across the fountain in the National Gallery Sculpture Garden).

On the front of the building is carved this quote:

The ties that bind the lives of our people in one indissoluble union are perpetuated in the archives of our government and to their custody this building is dedicated.

Quite a lovely way to describe what archives are all about, I think.
