London’s landmarks could have been very different indeed
The British Museum was founded in 1753 when Sir Hans Sloane left his collection to the nation. But before the Museum could open to the public, a suitable site needed to be purchased. One of the locations considered was a place called Buckingham House, which was later rebuilt as Buckingham Palace! But the Trustees agreed instead to move into Montague House, the site of the current Museum, and the rest is history! Or should that be geography?
