Charles Darwin mural

Bromley town pump and 2 murals

This mural replaced the one featuring H. G. Wells. Darwin is shown sitting at the foot of a tree which contains illustrations of various aspects of his work. There is also a portrait of Wells, (presumably as a nod to the previous mural), who was a devotee of Darwin's thinking. Darwin's claim to be a resident of Bromley is somewhat tenuous, as his former home (Down House) is only just within the boundary of the borough.

Site: Bromley town pump and 2 murals (3 memorials)

BR1, Market Square, 20 - 25

Our photograph showing the blank wall was taken from a website which no longer exists. The Wells mural was replaced by the one for Darwin.
