Old Westminster Library - head 6 - Tennyson Old Westminster Library - 6 heads

Bust: Old Westminster Library - head 6 - Tennyson

Tennyson died October 1892, the same year that this building was 'erected' according to the foundation stone, though above the entrance 1893 is given. This must have been a rush job following his death. Wonder who was kicked out in favour of Tennyson?

Site: Old Westminster Library - 6 heads (7 memorials)

SW1, Great Smith Street

The foundation stone is immediately to the right of the central entrance.

Above the entrance: "Westminster Public Library, The united parishes of St Margaret and St John the Evangelist, AD 1893". In 1985 this building was threatened with demolition and was only saved by a campaign which brought about the Thorney Island Society.

The Listing identifies the heads for us, and we've numbered them left to right.
