Photo of memorial to self-sacrifice in London, UK

In Postmans Park, London, there is a memorial to heroic self-sacrifice, which shows the stories of people who died trying to save others. The memorial was created by Victorian artist GF Watts and was unveiled in 1900. This photo shows some of the plaques, including those dedicated to Elizabeth Boxall (died 1888, trying to save a child from a runaway horse), Herbert Maconoghu (died 1882, aged 13, trying to save two drowning school friends), and several policemen who died in the course of saving people from drowning, an explosion, and poisonous gas.
