a war memorial.

I took this shot this morning. On a very grey day. This is the war memorial, Castle street, Lisburn. In the background is Castle gardens which was originally a fortified garden for Lisburn castle. The castle was destroyed in a fire along with much of Lisburn many years ago and the gardens have been restored. In the background you can see the Wallace monument erected in memory of Sir Richard Wallace in 1890. The local MP who donated water fountains to the poor of Paris and Lisburn. Thereby supplying safe and free water. A man worth reading about.
