Lynch's Memorial Window
Collection:Cardall
Description:This is a photograph of the memorial to the execution of a man for murder. Mayor Lynch hung his own son from a window. It is not sure if this ever actually happened. It is claimed that the event took place in 1493. The wording on the plaque beneath the window, allows the reader to assume that this is the actual window used for the execution. This memorial was erected in the 1800s. Beneath the plaque there is a bas-relief of a skull and cross bones. Beneath this, there is a walled up arched doorway. The front of one car and the back of another car can be seen parked on the street near the memorial. The steeple of the Collegiate Church of Saint Nicholas can be seen beyond the memorial. There are electric wires at the top of the picture.
