Jim Jim & Tycho

Plaque: Jim


In memory of Jim, died 1879, aged 15 years, faithful dog of Sir Henry Cole of this museum.

Site: Jim & Tycho (2 memorials)

SW7, Cromwell Road, Victoria & Albert Museum, Pirelli Garden

These plaques are on the southern wall of the internal courtyard and we've heard that Jim, at least, was buried in this courtyard when it was a garden.  Our picture for Henry Cole shows him with a dog but is it Jim or is it Tycho?

(We can see that giant box-robot doing the splits soon!)
