„Grey's Monument“

from the gallery of David Pringle

Greys Monument is a monument to Charles Grey, 2nd Earl Grey built in 1838 in the centre of Newcastle upon Tyne. It was erected to acclaim Earl Grey for the passing of the Great Reform Act of 1832 and stands at the head of Grey Street. The statue was created by the sculptor Edward Hodges Baily (creator of Nelson's statue in Trafalgar Square). This shot was taken just after sunrise and also shows the buildings on Blackett Street reflected in the windows of the modern Eldon Square Shopping Centre.
