David Isaacs

David Isaacs

Alderman in St Marylebone.  Ran a business as estate agent and surveyor in St Marylebone from 1901 and was in the local government there, as a Conservative, for over 30 years. Projects that he promoted include the widening of Marylebone Road and Park Road. As well as some figures, including the Street Orderly Boy, he gave other public art works to the borough: the large ‘Sport’ and a set of stone urns in another garden in the borough.  Died at his home in the country near Oxford. 

We are grateful to Di Grey, his great, great, granddaughter, for sending us the obituary in the local paper from which this information is obtained and for sending the photo, from Davis Brown, of the unveiling of ‘Sport’ where Isaacs is the man speechifying on the podium.

2021: We have been contacted by a researcher who would like to be make contact with Di Grey. Please contact us and we'll put you in contact.
