Big Ben

Excellent. You would think we would know everything about important historical structures.

"The present tower was raised as a part of Charles Barry's design for a new palace". I am not a betting person, but if someone's life depended on it, I would have bet solely on Pugin's gothickery.

I've always been fascinated by the bell and how they mis-cast it etc etc. The tower is an amazing structure.
