This was a good, well-designed, commemorative stone. But then (we surmise) one of the committee people realised that their efforts had gone unrecognised - a plaque had to be added, listing all those who had had a hand in the project, no matter that it ruined the simplicity of the design. In retaliation we have not honoured any of them with their own page (except the Mayor - already published for another memorial). Take that, committee members!

NW6, Palmerston Road, Webheath Estate

At Kilburn and Willesden History we learn that this commemorates the start of the building of the estate in May 1968 and the first stage of the Estate was opened two years later.

At that time the Council were proud of the accommodation they built - their logo is in the concrete of this memorial and repeated in the bricks at the western entrance, shown at this other memorial. Note: the logo has nothing to do with recycling, it was designed in 1965 and represents interlinked hands.
