Hermitage Riverside Memorial Garden, Wapping High Street, London E1W 1UJEast London Civilian War Memorial(World War History)(Photos Taken: 07-Mar-2021)Link
Plaque Wording: The Hermitage Memorial Riverside Garden
The garden and memorial sculpture are in memory of the East London civilians who were killed and injured in the Second World War, 1939 - 1945, and of the suffering of those who lost relatives, friends and homes.
Tens of thousands of men, women and children lost life and limb in the wartime bombing of London and other major cities. More than a million homes were destroyed. The most intense bombing occurred between September 1940 and May 1941 and became known as the Blitz (from the German "Blitzkrieg" meaning "lightning war"). In the first three months of the Blitz bombs rained on London almost every night.
The Port of London, with its docks, warehouses and industry, was an important strategic target for the German bombers and an easy one to locate along the Thames. Countless bombs also fell on the surrounding densely packed streets of East and South East London, which were home to many of London's poorest families. The consequences were devastating. On this site stood the Hermitage Wharf, which was hit during a massive firebomb raid on the City of London on 29 December 1940.
The memorial sculpture was designed by Wendy Taylor CBE. The symbol of the dove is intended to suggest hope, rather than dwell intrusively on the dead. Its representation as an absence signifies the loved ones who were lost. The garden and sculpture were commissioned by the Hermitage Environment Group and funded by the generous contributions of the Berkeley Group Holdings plc, the Williams Charitable Trust, the Garfield Weston Foundation and many other individuals and businesses.

Plaque Wording: 1869 - 1976 The Evelina Hospital for Sick Children in Southwark
Baroness Evelina de Rothschild Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild Lady Superintendent Alice Cross Dr Arthur Farre MD FRCP FRS
This plaque celebrates the founding of the Evelina Children's Hospital, which was built on this site in 1869. It commemorates the work of the founder, planners, doctors, nurses and staff, and all the generous benefactors and supporters during the hospital's first 107 years.
The hospital was founded by Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild in memory of the early deaths of his wife, Evelina, and their baby son. The hospital was planned by Dr Arthur Farre, obstetrician to Evelina and the royal family.
The chosen site, Southsea Court in Southwark, was in one of the poorest districts of London, where children were stricken with disease, serious infections and undernourishment leading to many deaths. This new model hospital uplifted the spirit of the people, bringing to a deprived district the hope of fighting the ravages of childhood diseases.
In 1976 the Evelina moved to Guy's Tower, Southwark, to unite with Guy's Hospital Children's Department. The old Evelina building was demolished and the area was converted into Mint Street Park.

Plaque Wording: The George and Devonshire, originally called The George, is a Grade II listed building, and has traded as a public house since the 1650's. It is the last pub still trading in what was Chiswick Village, the others having been demolished or closed down.
The George and Devonshire has had generations of publicans over the years including John Howell Burden, the assistant purser of the Lusitania, aged 25, who was drowned when it was torpedoed by a German U-boat on 7th May 1915. Both are buried in Chiswick Graveyard.
In the 18th century, smugglers used to row up the Thames with their contraband goods of rum and spirits and at a given signal pull over towards the huddle of fisher cottages between the river and the medieval church of St Nicholas. Somewhere among those tiny houses was the opening of a tunnel which led under the church to the George and Devonshire. There the boats would be unloaded and the goods carried up a secret passage, which led into the cellar. Evidence of this passageway can be seen today in the cellar of the George and Devonshire with two steps leading up to a bricked up doorway, facing towards the river!

7 Golden Yard, Hampstead, London NW3 6UHGolden Yard(Historical London)(Photos Taken: 08-May-2019)Link
Plaque Wording: Golden Yard is derived from "Goulding" the family who dwelt in the Yard for about 200 years.
The first copyhold grant of 20 Rods was made by the then Lord of the Manor of Hamstede Sir Robert Wroth to Henerye Gouldingy "by the Rod at the Will of the Lord according to the custom of the said Manor by Fealty Suit of Court" in the last quarter of the 16th Century.
The area was then largely a disused sand pit, the sand no doubt used in the expansion of Elizabethan London.
Its upper boundary was along the east side of the now Holly Mount and its lower boundary along the then Cloth Hill, later called the High Road and finally Heath Street. The first cottage in which the Gouldings lived was No. 6 the yearly rental value of which was assessed in 1646 at £3.
Henry Goulding was married at the Parish Church in 1574 to Agne Bolden and they had at least 6 children, the 3rd son Edward married at the age of 12 to a local girl Elizabeth Lacraft in 1601, at which time the population of Hampstead was under 200.
Other residences were erected here by the Goulding family in the late 17th and early 18th centuries, by which time this was called "Goulding's Yard." An entry in 1758 gives the names of those entitled to use "the said Pump in the yard for water, the common necessary house and watercourses".
The properties were sold in 1779 by Sarah Goulding (then a Mrs Brown) to John Bitton, upon whose death in 1822 and as directed in his Will the small estate was sold separately, his beneficiary living at that time in Benham Place close by.
Compiled from the Manorial and other Rolls, Parish Church Register, old Title Deeds and Maps, 1960, E.R. Levett, 6 Golden Yard.

Plaque Wording: Hydraulic Power Dockland's Lifeblood
History
With the advent of the industrial revolution, the exports and imports of Victorian Britain caused the rapid early nineteenth century growth of the London docklands. Muscle and then steam provided the power to do everything from opening the lock gates to loading and unloading the vast warehouses flanking both banks of the Thames. However, fire was such a great risk that the insurance companies insisted on an alternative to steam. This problem was solved largely by the hydraulic inventions of Lord Armstrong of Newcastle, amongst which was the 'jigger' preserved here, which in this case was built by the Hydraulic Engineering Co. Ltd. of Chester in 1890. Hydraulic power was the lifeblood of the docklands.
Mechanics
Widely distributed and easily controllable high-pressure water was fed into the large cylinder. This pushed the piston up, forcing the sheaves apart such that 10cm (4") of silent piston movement gave 80cm (32") of chain movement over the wall crane to unload lighters or barges in the river below. For loading boats out of the warehouse, water was exhausted from the cylinder so that the weight of the piston and load descended by gravity. Two small jiggers control slew, the horizontal semi-rotation of the crane for reaching different cargo positions and swinging the loads into the warehouse doors on each floor served by the same crane. The jigger and crane could be controlled from any floor via a reach rod running up through the building.
The refurbishment of the jigger is part of a series of improvement projects by Taylor Woodrow Property Co. Ltd., owners of St Katharine Docks, with contributory funding from the Government Office for London Single Regeneration Budget Challenge Fund through an award by the Pool of London Partnership.It can be seen going through its cycle by pressing the button once.

The eagle represents the kingdom of the air. The whale the lordship of the sea. The wolf, the genius of the land, and the frog, the transitional link between land and sea.

Plaque Wording: Jacob, the Circle dray horse
The famous Courage dray horses were stabled on this site from the early nineteenth century and delivered beer around London from the brewery on Horselydown Lane by Tower Bridge. In the sixteenth century the area became known as Horselydown, which derives from 'horse-lie-down', a description of working horses resting before crossing London Bridge into the City of London.
Jacob was commissioned by Jacobs Island Company and Farlane Properties as the centrepiece of the Circle to commemorate the history of the site. He was flown over London by helicopter into Queen Elizabeth Street to launch the Circle in October 1987.

Plaque Wording: Jasper Information Centre This building is one of the finest and most influential examples of rustic architecture in Canada's national parks. Designed by A.M. Calderon and completed in 1914, it introduced a building tradition based on the use of local construction materials, in this case cobblestone and timber. The facility originally housed park administration offices, a museum, and living quarters for the park superintendent. As the first major building in the townsite, it helped to define the character of Jasper's early development and provided a conspicuous landmark that greeted park visitors upon their arrival by train.

A fishing community had probably already been settled here on crown land by 1820, five years after the shipwreck of the Arniston. After passing into the successive ownership of the Swart and Pratt families, the settlement and ten morgen of land were transferred to the Waenhuiskrans Fishermen's Union in 1937. In 1970, when threatened by the Group Areas Act, the village was saved and subsequently restored by the Preserve Arniston Committee. Kassiesbaai is one of the few remaining traditional fishing villages in the vernacular style once prevalent in the South Western Cape.

Plaque Wording: {top left} In 1940 the sinister shadow of Fascism spilled across Europe and into North Africa. Malta, under the protection of Great Britain, found herself alone in a hostile Mediterranean 800 miles from her nearest allies in Gibraltar and Alexandria. Besieged by enemies Malta became a fulcrum on which the fate of the war balanced for the next three years. If Malta fell the rest of North Africa would follow, opening the door to the oil fields of the Middle East and for the Axis Powers to join in Asia and threaten India. The allies knew this. So did the Axis Powers. Malta, besieged, became and remains the most bombed place in the history of War.
Supplied only by Sea, at great cost, Malta was defended not only by her own people but by forces drawn from the whole free world. Fighter aircraft delivered by the American and Royal Navies were piloted by Britons, Canadians, Australians, and New Zealanders. Convoys crewed by British, American and Commonwealth seamen were supported by the free forces of Greece, the Netherlands, and Poland. Free Norwegians added their merchant fleet to the Allied cause. In April 1942 King George VI awarded to the People of Malta the George Cross, the highest decoration for civilian courage and heroism.
By summer 1942 only weeks of food remained and the Allies mounted operation Pedestal as a last attempt to save Malta. After a five-day running battle the Convoy's four remaining merchant vessels and the immortal Tanker Ohio, all that was left of the fourteen that set out, entered Grand Harbour. The date was 15th August, 1942, the feast of Santa Maria. The siege was broken; within months North Africa was retaken and the first steps of European liberation begun.
This stone taken from Malta, was presented by the Maltese Government on the 60th Anniversary of the end of Second World War to commemorate all who participated in the siege and defence of Malta, 1940-43.
Placed by the George Cross Island Association, 15th August 2005.

Plaque Wording: (Note by John Mann, Historian): It says this house is on the site of the prebend which goes back to the times of Henry VIII [first half 16C]
This is wrong by two or three hundred yards and almost four centuries.
The area of the prebend was roughly the area bounded by Willesden Lane, Walm lane, and Shoot up Hill. The moated manor house was about half way between Deerhurst and Coverdale Roads with its main exit on to Willesden Lane [known until 19C as Mapes Lane]. In 19C the manor house garden extended as far as Chatsworth.
Walter Map after whom the prebend and the manor estate are named lived and flourished in the time of Henry II [ie second half of 12C] who spent most of his reign in France about half of which belonged to him or his wife. Map was an almost man in both church and state, who wrote satirical sketches about court life. H II's sons included Richard the Lion Heart and bad king John who was the one who was forced to sign Magna Carta which was really about rights for barons not rights for you and me.
