Plaque

(lost) Bowler plaque - Soup, Bread and Salt

Erection date: 1995

We failed to find this in Dec-Jan 2017. The plaque shows bowls of soup, bread rolls and spoons holding salt, as a reference to the Jewish soup kitchen. This cast-iron roundel is one of 22 - see Bowler's page for more details.
