Prototype Cenotaph MCF01_02_0598

CENOTAPH, WHITEHALL, WESTMINSTER, CITY OF WESTMINSTER, GREATER LONDON. A view of a crowd gathered round the Cenotaph on Whitehall for the Peace Day celebrations with flags and bunting on the buildings behind.
This photograph is one of a group the photographer took on the 18th, 21st & 23rd July 1919 recording the peace decorations that had been erected in London for Peace Day, 19th July 1919, in celebration of the end of World War 1. The cenotaph shown in the photograph was constructed from wood and plaster and was only meant to stand for a week for the Peace Day celebrations and Victory March, but it stayed in place until January 1920 and a permanent replacement in stone was unveiled on Armistice Day, 11 November 1920
