Where to put the crimean war memorial

Recommended Posts

Cheers Karl101,

 

Thats it-the top bit looks like a young Queen Victoria but is supposed to represent Victory and was in the Botanical Gardens. The col-I think- is in several pieces in Upperthorpe while there's a bit missing that the Council sold but don't remember who to !

 

Hillsborough Barracks is a thought but it should stay in the city centre.

Could i ask where that picture was taken? if anyone can identify it? maybe it could go back there if it is possible.

Hi Dink,

 

That's Moorhead - roughly where the electrical store is now- God what do they call it !

 

Newton Chambers used but it got flattened in the Blitz.

I remember the statue in the Botanical Gardens, before they replaced it with that rubbish fountain. It was in a sorry state of repair, I recall a missing hand. I live in Upperthorpe, I've not seen any column shaped lumps of stone, but then, I've not been looking.

The photo is looking up pinsonte street towards the peace gardens/ town hall.

 

The church in the back ground is where the peace gardens is now .

 

To take a modern image of this phot you would have to stand at he top of the moor pedestrain area with debenhams to your left behind you , furnival gate is in front of you and redgates (!) is to your right
