Taken by Tony Whelan at the same time as H4572 : Omagh High Street September 1959 again showing the monument as described in that image.
I have been contacted by a local who mentions the following: -

There's interesting 4 things I notice, which you might want to add to the text?

1 The No Entry sign on the left, I wonder if traffic had to go round the right of the monument, to head to Dromore by John Street?

2 On the right, the red lettering for the Melville Hotel can be seen

3 In the building to the left of it, there was the police station and the police lamp is still visible on the wall

4 A car about to head up Georges Street, which would be unthinkable now as the traffic only is allowed to enter High Street. It always was difficult as the street was narrow and was worse with cars parked along it.
