Detail from: Memorial to 158 Squadron by Peter W. Naylor, 2009

Allegorical Figures


Type Panel

     These reliefs showed female personifications of Industry, Art, Painting and Science. Industry carried a Portland vase and a tool for sculpting glass, the vase being chosen as 'the highest product of the special industry of the neighbourhood'.(1) Each figure was surrounded by tree-like foliage that bore apples (the fruits of their labour?) The figures were stolen in October 1991.
          The panels must have been included in the first stage of the building work, for they are mentioned in the County Express of 11 February 1899. Frederick Carder emigrated to America in 1903.
