Postman's Park

Anne from I like recently visited Postman's Park in London - a strange and beautiful place.

The park was the idea of the painter George Frederick Watts who wanted to celebrate the heroism of people who may otherwise have been forgotten. A wall in the park has 47 hand-painted tiles paying tribute to everyday people who sacrificed their lives helping others.

See Anne's Flickr set here. And read more about it here and here.

Strange. Haunting. Beautiful.
