Structure


1903 by Albert Toft. Bronze figure on Portland stone pedestal with low relief bronze panels. Square pedestal with panels (on north face, inscription; east, SS John Bowes; south, a coal miner; west, HMS Resolution), a free-standing Ionic column at each corner supporting the frieze and overhanging cornice. Re-sited from Clayton Street in the town centre. Historic note: Palmer (1822-1907) founded the shipbuilding firm which caused Jarrow to develop from a village to a town. The SS John Bowes, launched 1852, was the first screw-driven collier and revolutionised the Tyne-London coal trade by making the return trip in 5 days. LISTED GRADE 2
