The Albert Tavern, a Victorian public house built in 1864, stands next to the modern office redevelopment of Selborne House, left, on Victoria Street, Feb. 7, in London, England. The pub, which stands a short distance from Parliament, was named in honor of Queen Victoria's husband, the Prince Consort and has survived the extensive redevelopment of many of its neighbors.
