London, GBR - August 7, 2005 -- The Tower of London viewed from a ferry in the Thames River on August 7, 2005.  Construction of the tower was begun during the reign of William the Conquerer from 1066 - 1087.  This view also shows the Traitors' Gate at the lower left of the frame.  This gate was built between 1275 and 1279 to provide an entrance to the tower from the Thames River.  It became known as the Traitors' Gate due to the large number of prisoners accused of treason passed through it to be imprisoned in  the Tower.  Some, such as Queen Anne Boelyn and Sir Thomas More, entered the prison and were later executed..Credit: Ron Sachs / CNP
