Watts Memorial to heroic self-sacrifice: the stories behind the plaques.
Postman's Park is a rather special place: a small haven amongst the office blocks near St Paul's Cathedral, it is also home to the Watts Memorial. Established by Victorian G F Watts, it is a monument to 'ordinary heroes' who died saving others. Each plaque tells the story of one such act of heroism.
In 2008-9, I ran a series looking at the stories behind the plaques on the Watts Memorial. This page offers an easy way to explore those plaques, with an index of names as well as listings by theme.
