The Bosanquet Monument (2)

This is Soane’s tomb of Samuel Bosanquet in the churchyard of Leyton, before it was taken down in 1957 following vandalism: very nice, slightly exaggerated scrolled volutes and an early version of the telephone box on top:

There is a model for it in wood, still in the Soane Museum.
