Happy Origin Day!


Today marks the 150th anniversary of Charles Darwin publishing his masterpiece The Origin of Species

One of these days, I'll have to actually finish reading the whole thing through...

... I leave you with a picture (below) I took of the man back in 2006 at the London Natural History Museum, before he was moved.



Darwin and Huxley having lunch with their adoring public!
This was before they moved Darwin to the top of the steps in the Main Hall, replacing Richard Owens.
I wonder where Owens ended up?
