PAG Memorial

After a month of 2010 FIFA World Cup themed photos the big event is now something of the past and I can return posting "generic" pictures of Port Elizabeth and its surrounds. One of my favorite memorials in Port Elizabeth is the Prince Alfred Guard Memorial in St Georges Park. The memorial was erected in remembrance of men from the regiment that died in four different wars, one of them the Anglo Boer War. The memorial stands on Port Elizabeth's second oldest water reservoir. There used to be a fountain with water all around the memorial, but these days its been filled and contain flowers. The fountain must have pushed up daisies.

  1. I love this memorial too, and surprisingly few people know what it commemorates. Didn't realise that the fountains had been replaced by flowers - or that it is on top of a reservoir!
