History

History:All four allegorical statues from the Aquarium Clock Tower were moved to Preston Park in 1928. By 1979 there were only two remaining and nothing is known about the whereabouts of the other two. The statues have been subject to vandalism on several occasions over the years and in October 2007, one of the statues was removed for repair following further acts of vandalism. At some point in time, the statues have been painted in florid colours out of keeping with their style and origins.
