Dr. Salter's Daydream - new design

Thames Wall, Bermondsey, London.
A campaign by local people and backed by Southwark Council are raising money for this new version of Dr Salter and also his wife Ada - if you are interested to learn more about the Salters or donate click here

The Theme
‘Dr Salter’s Daydream’ will be expanded by the welcome addition of Alfred Salter’s wife - Ada Salter, a remarkable woman who deserves recognition for her many good works to benefit the people of Bermondsey.

Alfred and Ada Salter worked so hard for Bermondsey that they did not have much time to relax, but after the birth of Joyce they made a garden at their home, a ‘green parlour’ where their ‘sunshine’ could play. This is the memory I wish to evoke for Dr Salter. Move mouse to see maquettes.

Green Parlour
Phil and I suggest that the current site might possibly be divided by planting, to suggest a garden room. The colours of the planting – white, green and purple would celebrate and symbolize the suffrage movement which the Salters supported
