Inscription

{Front of plinth:}
Sir Henry Tate baronet, vpright merchant, wise philanthropist.

H T

{Rear of plinth:}
Erected by pvblic svbscription, 1905.

{The use of 'v's for 'u' is not our affectation.}

The inscribed day of death, 8, is consistently contradicted by other sources which give 5. The inscription on the rear of the plinth is almost completely eroded, so we are grateful to the Public Monuments and Sculpture Association for the information.
