Dedication

Front Inscription

This sundial and garden court is erected as a memorial and tribute to Bob Brothers, a native of this City of Bendigo. His charity, kindness and comradeship, particularly at Bourke on the Darling River NSW, inspired Henry Lawson to characterise him in the story `Send around the Hat`. `And I wish that I could immortalise him`. Henry Lawson
