Sculpture: St James's Church Garden opening
Mary of Nazareth by Sir Charles Wheeler P.R.A., presented in 1975.
This garden was opened by Her Majesty Queen Mary, May 12th 1946.
Site: St James's Church Garden (3 memorials)
Looking at the cafe picture:
- The war damage plaque is on the wall that you can just see on the left.
- On the right you can see one of the four cherubs belonging to the Southwood fountain.
On a visit in about 1998 we found a small hand-made memorial in amongst the plants, to Taffy, a tramp who had made the garden his home and had recently died. When we went back some years later with our camera this, not surprisingly, had gone so we sadly cannot include it here. 2012 - Discovering London have a picture of Taffy's sign plus the one for Mackerel the Rectory Cat.
