This is a 3-part memorial: a building to the north of Lincoln's Inn Fields and, in the public gardens, a small monument and a tree, all three having their own plaque in English and French. In our photograph the building can be seen behind the memorial and the tree (outside the picture) is the other side of the path. The tree, the monument and its short ceremonial path line up, pointing at the door of the building.
