King George's Field - E3 - Mile End Road King George's Field - E3 - Mile End Road

Plaque: King George's Field - E3 - Mile End Road

Inscription

{On the plaque to the left:}
George V, AD 1910 - 1936

{On the plaque to the right:}
King George's Field

The entrance to the Field is an important part of the memorial aspects of each site. For instance: the two heraldic panels are supposed to be displayed on either side of the entrance, not together on one side, as here. Also, the grounds are supposed to be playing fields, and this green space does not look like playing fields to us.

Site: King George's Field - E3 - Mile End Road (1 memorial)

E3, Mile End Road

We know of two other nearby pairs of these plaques: in Grove Road, on the curved green-glazed building at the junction with Mile End Road (not yet collected), and at the Solebay Street bridge over the canal.   We guess that these King George's Fields had a number of entrances, and plaques were erected at each entrance.

However, looking at old maps, King George's Fields are shown as occupying only the area south of Bow Common Lane.  So, at the very least, these plaques have been moved northwards, possibly even copied, to adorn this new green area.
