Coram bust Foundling Museum

Bust: Coram bust

Erection date: 1937

The base of the bust is inscribed "D Evans".

Site: Foundling Museum (2 memorials)

WC1, Brunswick Square, Foundling Museum

The bust is above the front door of the museum. Further up, above the window is a plaque with:
T
FH
RG
1937
which we think means that the building was erected in 1937 during the office of a Treasurer of the charity with initials RG.

More interestingly, on the railings behind the statue there is a Tracey Emin sculpture.

Ornamental Passions tells us the architect was  J. M. Sheppard and Partners.
