Panoramas 60-70

Gandhi, Tavistock Square London Panorama

By August 27, 2005 No Comments

Tavistock Square contains a small shaded park in the Bloomsbury sector of London. The panorama is taken at the central feature of the park – a statue of Mahatma Gandhi. The statue has been in the park since 1968 and was designed by Fredda Brilliant.

The park also contains trees planted to commemorate the victims of the Hiroshima bombing and a Conscientious Objectors’ memorial.

It is a quiet place to sit and the panorama displays a distinct contrast to the scene in July 2005 when a bus was blown up on the square just a few metres from the park.
