Statues and Monuments: Dragon boundary markers

Posted: August 24, 2015 in London, UK



These statues mark the main entrances to the city of London. The dragon supports the shield bearing the city’s coat of arms. The design was chosen in 1964 and over the following 5 years 10 copies were erected at the major points of access to the ‘square mile’ of the city of London.The design is based on two large dragon sculptures, which were mounted above the entrance to the Coal Exchange on Lower Thames Street and were designed by the City Architect, J.R.Bunning in 1849.
