Default Outside The Ten Bells

Hi All,

I see in many pictures of The Ten Bells there are carvings/sculptures on the outside of various faces. I attached an image for reference (hope it worked).

Two questions:
1. Are these carvings originally there on The Ten Bells, particularly in 1888?

2. Are the faces any particular people?

Any feedback or answers appreciated

Hi Matt


I'm afraid the faces have rather blank expressions.

Hi Matt. Sitting in Idaho, USA, I am the last person who should comment on geographical features of London. However my mind is a cesspool of stray knowledge.

This may or may not pertain to your question. In Goulston Street, the place where the graffiti was written is now the Happy Days fish and chips shop. On that street, perhaps that very building, there are what look like plaster works of heads and so forth used as decoration. It was said these features were part of a beautification project sometime in the Twentieth Century, Art Deco or something.

So, for what it's worth, or not....

Thanks Anna.

Do you believe that the carvings outside the Ten Bells may not have been there in 1888? If that is true then the rest is incidental towards what I am working on.

Thanks for the Goulston Street mention though. That location also features in my work.

I don't have an opinion about the Ten Bells. We have many people here who are actually IN England and who know much more than I do. We have some good threads here that discuss the Ten Bells and Casebook has some other information. I have a feeling something like what you are asking has been discussed before.

Anyway, a Google search should pull up images of the Ten Bells going way back in time, probably to 1888 and before.
