First Peelers training school

Erection date: 24/5/2010

Inscription

{Inscribed into the bronze near the horse's hoof:}
Stuart Bamford Smith, 2009

A nearby plaque says:
Opened by the Mayor of London Boris Johnson on 24 May 2010. Development completed in May 2010.

The bronze panel depicts an everyday scene in London at that time - that of a Peeler rescuing the terrified occupants of a carriage drawn by a runaway horse. Reference for the background street scene was contemporary Francis Frith photographs.
