The Globe Theatre
The Globe Theatre was located in London. In 1613, it burned to the ground when a cannon shot during a performance of Henry Vlll ignited the thatched roof of the gallery. The first theater was built at Shoreditch in the year of 1576 and owned by James Burbage. The Globe Theater was a great success and were very popular. The numbers dropped due to the Bubonic Plague when the theater shut down in the years of 1593, 1603 and 1608.
The Bubonic Plague
The bubonic plague was very serious and extremely contagious
It was not a good thing to catch and often times resulted in death
Live or Die?
It was not something you wanted to catch and if you did chances are you wouldn't survive. If you wanted the rest of your family to live than staying away from them is best
The City of London
the streets of London were cobbled and often times slippery
London streets ready for a new day
The View from Here
Walking along the streets has an amazing view and attracts many tourists
I know of none;
Nor know I you by voice or any feature:
I hate ingratitude more in man
Than lying, vainess, babbling, drunkeness,
Or any taint of vice whose strong corruption
Inhabits our frail blood
Can you figure out what this means?
