Description: Two sets of 3 turned stone columns with bronze caps. Height: 120 cm. One set relates to World History / the other to Doncaster's history. Each column takes a theme: Doncaster's Architecture, Industry and History and the World's Scientific Discovery, Transport and Religions. These are shown as line drawings etched into the surface of the stone by sandblasting.

Commission: Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council. Lesley Fallais and Brian Jackson were involved in the tiled timeline, but apart from contact at meetings for the Mansion Square Project there was no collaboration between this piece and the Timeline. The Timeline Waymarkers were influenced by considerable community discussion and input. [1]

Comment: Phase 4 of Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council 'Quality Streets Project'
