  • The Henry Fawcett Memorial is a fountain commemorating Henry Fawcett inside the Victoria Embankment Gardens. Henery Fawcett will not be known to a great many people. He was British academic, politician and economist who introduced many innovations, including parcel post, postal orders, and licensing changes to permit payphones and trunk lines. He is also known for having participated on Charles Darwin's "On Origin of Species" during the 1860 Oxford evolution debate. As for the statue, it's a fountain containing a relief portrait of Henry Fawcett. The outlet for the water is through the mouth of a fish sculpture below the portrait. Nothing amazing to see, but a worthwhile detour if in Victoria Embankment Gardens
