Find William Edward Forster

One of many statues in Victoria Embankment Gardens, a memorial to William Edward Forester is found just to the east of the Temple tube station.

Forster was involved in the Victorian wool industry, but is commemorated for his work as a politician, where he was involved in education, including the Elementary Education Bill, which established a framework for schooling of all children between 5 and 12 in England and Wales.
