Tree: Fawcett house - Vauxhall
Erection date: 2013
This mulberry tree marks the site of the house where Millicent Garrett Fawcett, women's rights campaigner, & Henry Fawcett, statesman, lived, 1874 - 1884.
Jointly sponsored by the South London Fawcett Group & Friends of Vauxhall Park.
We're not experts so we'll accept that the tree is a mulberry. And the tree engraved on the plaque - we'll accept that that is an older version of the same thing. It's the acorn engraved at the base that confuses us. Perhaps the acorn signifies that the Fawcetts' activities were the beginnings of something much greater.
