Rufus Stone - Site of King William II death

Yet another strange find in Rochester, this was a very old picture of the Rufus Stone, the site marking King William II's death by arrow, which was erected in 1865.

See a contemporary photo of it here (the trees are gone and the area looks quite bare now): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Rufus_stone_side1.JPG
