Relief: Boys Playing Football
Erection date: 1951
Similar to those "spot the ball" competitions, in that no ball is shown.
2022: Peri's grandson, also Peter, contacted us suggesting that we look again for the ball, especially in the negative space. Thank you, Peter.
Site: South Lambeth Estate Peri sculptures (2 memorials)
SW8, Fentiman Road, South Lambeth Estate
Both sculptures face north-west. In our photo, between the two buildings you can see the Footballers on the far block, Wareham House. The Mother and Children is outside our photo, on the building to the right, Horton House.
A third Peri sculpture, the nearby Following the Leader, is a memorial to children killed in the Blitz. Go to that page for more information about all 3 of these sculptures.
