Photo-a-day 133: Old Eldon Square

20120512-184041.jpg

This is the war memorial in Newcastle’s Old Eldon Square. It’s a bronze figure of St George finishing off the dragon, designed by Charles Hartwell and unveiled in 1923. The inscription reads “Memory lingers here”.

This isn’t the best angle – St George is leaning off the other side of the horse, poking the dragon with his sword, so he looks a bit decapitated from this rear angle…
