Lion outside South Shields Museum

Leo in supine state

Statue of lion outside of South Shields Museum, Ocean Road.

I need to appeal to local readers to help me out with the history of this piece, he has stood guard outside the Museum for many years yet I know nothing of his history. Where was he before someone decided to rest him here?

  1. Is this not the young fellow that stood guard over the portico of the Golden Lion in King Street? He’s looking a bit older now (like all of us who frequented the Gentlemen’s Bar in the days when it was safe to go trolling around that area at night-time) Across the road was another example of the glorious wild-life of the world, the Eagle.
