Great Yarmouth – Community Garden

I haven’t noticed this before, it’s a community garden which is located outside of Great Yarmouth’s library. Once this space was occupied by Rows 104 and 106, but they were destroyed by bombings during the Second World War and this area was remodelled. The hand-crafted totem pole is part of the community garden’s art project, designed alongside the sculptor Jason Parr and installed here in 2011.

This is an interesting survival, it’s the former sign above the entrance to the Corn Hall on Howard Street, which opened in October 1871. The building was used by a corn merchants and a general sale room before it was demolished in the 1960s due to road widening.
