Site: WW1, Fryatt and Wilson (3 memorials)

EC2, Liverpool Street Station

Prior to the restoration of the station these memorials stood elsewhere. The war memorial was originally erected in the booking hall. One can see that the arrangement has been rather cobbled together - the lift would not have been part of any original design. The stone frieze, "Great Eastern Railway", was salvaged from Harwich House.
