The Tulip Stairs
Day 4 of my #FiveDayBlackAndWhiteChallenge. Having been nominated by Simon Freeman, I have to post a B&W photo each day for 5 days, and nominate a different person each day to take up the challenge.Today I nominate Shula Miles for the challenge.
The elegant Tulip Stairs in the Queen's House are the first geometric self-supporting spiral stair in Britain. Although called the 'tulip' stairs, it is thought that the stylized flowers in the wrought-iron balustrade are actually fleurs-de-lis, as this was the emblem of the Bourbon family of which Queen Henrietta Maria (wife of Charles I) was a member.
