Plaque: Carlos and Elvia Castello Branco

Inscription

{On a plaque on the ground to the north:}
This fountain has been refurbished in honour of Carlos Castello Branco (1920 - 1993) and his wife Elvia by their daughter Luciana, unveiled by Rubens Antonio Barbosa, Brazilian Ambassador and the Lord Mayor of Westminster, Councillor Angela Hooper, OBE. 4th July 1994.

Site: Henry Lofts & Carlos & Elvia Castello Branco (2 memorials)

W1, Mount Street, St George's Gardens

A modern information board inside the entrance to the park states "The bronze drinking fountain of a rearing horse was designed by Sir Ernest George and Harold Peto in 1891 for Henry Lofts, an estate agent. Sir Ernest George was also designer of 104 - 111 Mount Street." Which is fine except for the "rearing horse" which seems to have galloped away, leaving no trace. Since our visit we have seen this horse described as "tiny" - we will go back for another look, with a magnifying glass.
