Plaque (lost): West Berlin street lamp - previous plaque

Erection date: 1/6/1963


The lamp above this plaque was formerly used to light a street in West Berlin. It was presented by Herr Willi Brandt, the Mayor of West Berlin to Councillor Stanley Atkins J.P., the Worshipful the Mayor of Hammersmith as a token of friendship between the two communities on the occasion of the jumelage held in this borough.
1st June 1963.

Site: West Berlin street lamp (2 memorials)

W6, Furnivall Gardens, Lower Mall, Westcott Lodge

July 2017: The lamp and plaque have gone. We've made two visits, hunting all over Furnivall Gardens but found nothing. Thankfully no one asked what we were looking for: "we've lost a street lamp" might have elicited some strange looks. All the foliage has gone too, leaving a white wall with a few neat, low, plants. We wrote to the Council and asked what was happening. To our delighted surprise we received a reply, saying that the lamp is being refurbished and will return. Please let us know if you see it back in place.

June 2018: the lamp is back, with a new plaque, which we predict will shortly be hidden by foliage. The text is identical to that of the original.
