Inscription

{On the pier to the north:}
Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park
Opened 1934

{On the pier to the south:}
For the splendid struggling mothers of Southwark and their children.

"The splendid struggling mothers..." is surely a quote from something, perhaps written by Geraldine Mary at the time the Park was being proposed/opened?

Site: Geraldine Mary Harmsworth (1 memorial)

SE1, Kennington Road, Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park

The carved lettering have a rather modern feel and the stonework looks newish so we think it likely that this entrance was restored as part of the 75th anniversary clean-up of the park.
