History

Marine Gardens - Unveiling Plaque, April 1932

Marine Garden PlaqueThis photograph records the unveiling of a commemorative tablet by Miss. Emma Birchall, a resident of Marine Terrace, at the opening of Marine Garden on the 9th April, 1932. It records that ‘Marine Garden site transferred to the Council by owners of adjoining houses and works constructed by direct labour on an unemployment scheme’. Due to neglect the tablet had become hidden in bushes and undergrowth and was assumed to have been lost or stolen. Recent remedial work, however, brought it to light. It is presently held by the Council in store for safe keeping, but a replica, generously provided by them, now sits in the garden, not far from where the original one was situated.
