The Past Is My Present To Your Future
Another "public art work" - see NZ2564 : (Part of) Blue Carpet Square. This one, installed in Grainger Street in 2002, is by Charlie Holmes and Ian Ness, and is a monument to Richard Grainger.

Richard Grainger (17971861) was a builder in Newcastle upon Tyne. He worked together with the architects John Dobson and Thomas Oliver, and with the town clerk, John Clayton, to redevelop the centre of Newcastle in the 19th century. Grainger Street and the Grainger Market are named after him; the whole area of Newcastle developed in the Neoclassical style around Grey Street and Grainger Street is now referred to as Grainger Town.
