Prudential Assurance, Lewisham High Street SE13

Caroline's Miscellany has posted this picture of another statue of Prudence, on the Pru in Lewisham. This one is labelled Prudentia, her old Latin name, and she carries a snake and a book rather than her usual mirror.
Victorian sculptors must have been kept quite busy knocking out statues of the dear girl, as the Prudential chain expanded over the country.
