The Anonymous Widower

Farewell Dr. Zebra

Little is to be found on the Internet about George Charlesworth, who died last month.  He was the man, who suggested the black and white stripes to improve pedestrian crossings and was therefore nicknamed Dr. Zebra. His obituary is here.

He is one of those few people, who have earned a similar inscription on their grave as Christopher Wren.

Reader, if you seek his memorial – look around you.

There are only a few of whom that can be said.
