Kensington Gardens: Jenner statue
Kensington Gardens: Jenner statue
Pictured through light snow a few days after much fell, here is a memorial to Edward Jenner (1749-1823), who showed, using a nine-year-old boy as a guinea pig, that vaccinating with the disease of cowpox would immunise against smallpox. He predicted that smallpox, an often fatal disease in his time, would eventually be eradicated worldwide, and it took till 1980 for him to be proved right.

The monument was erected in 1862.
