7/7 London Bombing memorial in Hyde Park

Pictures and text by Valerie Brunelle

The memorial is located in Hyde Park in London's West End. It consists of 52 stainless steel pillars, one for each victim. These are grouped in four clusters, to mark the four locations of the attacks: Tavistock Square, Edgware Road, King's Cross and Aldgate. It was first unveiled July 7, 2009. The pictures were taken on 14 November, 2009.


This is a 1.4 ton stainless steel plaque with the names of all those who were killed.
Standing from the foot of the plaque you can see the 52 stainless steel pillars, one for each victim.
A view of the whole memorial together, you can see that the plaque sits at the front look at the pillars.
The rest of the pictures give you different angels of the steel pillars and how they are aligned. These are grouped in four clusters, to mark the four locations of the attacks.
.
On each pillars is a marking of that date, the time and the place that person was killed. Note there are no names on the pillars them selves just the time, place and date.
