Additional information

The additional images display a unique insight into the evolution of memorials over time. The 'original' setting images were taken in 1996 and are in stark contrast to the images of thirteen years later, where the palms have grown to a significant height. However, the loss of some palms has led to consideration of alternative plantings.
