A sculpture displayed at Waterloo Underground Station during the Festival of Britain in 1951 has returned to the South Bank this summer after a crowdfunding appeal by Historic England to raise funds for its restoration.
Earlier this year we reported on the fundraising appeal launched by Historic England after the sculpture by Peter Laszlo Peri – presumed lost – was discovered in the garden of a Blackheath hotel.
Now the piece has returned to the Festival of Britain site for the first time since 1951.
