‘Albert Pattern’ helmet of the Royal Dragoons used from 1847 to 1855 on display at the Horse Guards Museum in London

Introduced by Prince Albert, the design was based on the Continental models and is very similar to that worn by the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment today.

It is one of the many changes to royal uniforms and style Prince Albert made.

#134 Aldersgate St. ca. 1875

(Note the “Shakespeare house” signage. For many years, before it was demolished in 1879, it was claimed that Shakespeare had lived here. Despite standing near the Fortune Playhouse and the fact it was once owned by a William Shakespeare there’s no proof that the Shakespeare lived at this address.)
