Jewel Tower ( 7 x 9 blue ballpoint pen) Reference photo:

The Jewel Tower, in London is one of only two surviving structures of the medieval Palace of Westminster. It was built in 1365 to house the treasures of Edward III, and is alternatively known as the "King's Privy Wardrobe". It was a corner tower to the walled palace. You can see remnants of the two walls. One wall extended to the right next to the door, and other wall was attached just to the right of the small window and came forward. The building with all the spires is Westminster Abby.
