Timrod Monument, Washington Square


Two photographs of the statue (bust) of the poet Henry Timrod in Washington Square Park, erected in 1901. Two young girls stand outside the iron fence that surrounds it. Other onlookers are on the other side. The monument to the Washington Light Infantry is in the background. The southeast corner of Fireproof Building can be seen (left) and the fire tower/bell tower (located behind old lower fire station at 116 Meeting Street) is in the distant background. Also in background is a rear view of 108 Meeting and 110 Meeting.
