25 April is DNA day.  On 25 April 1953, Crick and Watson announced the double helix structure of DNA partially based on the work of Rosalind Franklin’s X ray diffraction (no I do not want to debate who scooped whom.)

I took this picture when I was in Cambridge after having realized just what pub I had had my post-conference cider in: https://flic.kr/p/rnJir6

However, the plaque gives another date: https://flic.kr/p/s1d35M

In Gonville and Caius College, Crick is commemorated by one of the stained glass windows: https://flic.kr/p/5TY3gb
