Where is it? #69…

October 11, 2013

Where-is-it--#69Can you identify where in London this picture was taken and what it’s of? If you think you can, leave a comment below. We’ll reveal the answer early next week. Good luck!

Congrats to Carol Stanley – this statue is located in St George’s Gardens (a formal burial ground located near Coram’s Fields, famous for containing the tomb of Oliver Cromwell’s grand-daughter Anna Gibson). The terracotta figure is of Euterpe, the muse of instrumental music, and, interestingly it (and eight others) once adorned the facade of the Apollo Inn on Tottenham Court Road (the building was demolished in 1961 and the statue subsequently found its way here).

    The statue and the setting looked familiar and a bit of brain-wracking led me to a church garden near Coram Fields. Google reminded me it’s St George’s Gardens and the statue is of Euterpe the Muse.
