Charles Mark Palmer

picture of statue to Charles Mark Palmer, Jarrow.

Jarrow's great benefactor

Charles Mark Palmer was born in South Shields and went on to become a merchant, a shipowner, shipbuilder, and social benefactor to the people of Jarrow. He became their first Mayor and Member of Parliament, and was responsible, also, for the building of two hospitals. You can see a detailed account of his life's work - here

This statue to Palmer is erected in Jarrow's riverside park and continues a small series of Jarrow pictures started yesterday.


What a great light you caught there. It works so well coming from behind. Lovely shot Curly.
bel effet sur ta photo, la statue rayonne sur la ville.

beautiful effect on your photograph, the statue radiates on the city.

I like the halo effect. It's perfect for this image.
