a personal challenge
At first I thought that this was a steeple that had lost its church. A might tall memorial, William Cargill must have been an important man. Thanks Diana for sharing this week and I hope to see more kiwi treasures in the future.
A great nice tower.Greetings from Germany
look great it issimilar which I have seen in England
Stunning architecture in the monument!! I love all of the ornate details in it.
Very much like a steeple that missed being placed up high. Is that a fountain basin at the base?
Yes, though they are not in use. Drinking fountains were included in the original design.
That's a very beautiful monument, very ornate and lovely. Thanks for sharing this with us.
Wow that's some momument. Very intricate details on it.
I love all the intricate sculpture on the memorial monument. It seems like I saw one similar to this in Oxford. It looks like you can go inside. I bet that would be interesting.
Quite a detailed monument!
Tom's comment made me laugh.Very interesting monument.I like it.:0)
What a gorgeous monument...I always think of what talent it took to creat/build/make something like this.
