Bowler plaque - Book, Children and Eight Pencils Christ Church school

Plaque: Bowler plaque - Book, Children and Eight Pencils

Erection date: 1995

The two figures are inspired by the figures shown on the wall relief. These depict the two charity scholar figures that were on the facade of this school, as on most charity schools. On this pavement plaque they are placed as if on facing pages of a book and surrounded by a ring of 8 pencils - all school-related items.

This cast-iron roundel is one of 22 - see Bowler's page for more details.
