1986 Eros statue history


Vanguard carefully dismantled Eros, Londons best known statue, and his supporting Shaftesbury Memorial Fountain, packed them up and shipped them north of the border to Scotland.

Once there, they were meticulously renovated by Edinburgh firm Charles Henshaw & Sons, the company that originally cast Eros in 1893. A year later, looking as good as new, we re-installed Eros and the Fountain back to their rightful pace in Piccadilly Circus.
