            yup, no pics of the original. I do believe that building was destroyed yes?

              It's true that the original building that housed the secret court of the Star Chamber is gone.

              But my point had more to do with this phrase:

              Finally, in 1641 the Long Parliament abolished the hated Star Chamber, though its name survives still to designate arbitrary, secretive proceedings in opposition to personal rights and liberty.
              I guess it was a little more obscure than I thought. But obscurity was my original intent...

                Well we could have used the cone of Silence:

                  I'm aware of what it was, and what it was used for. I didn't think that we had one here in the forums...

                    Well, if you get a Spy ribbon you may find there are places where it would be ok to wear it. All that I'm saying.
