BRIDGE LIONS


CITY OF ST. AUGUSTINE, FLORIDA

CONDITION AND RECOMMENDATIONS


PREPARED BY HISTORIC PROPERTY ASSOCIATES

September 30, 1992


GENERAL DESCRIPTION: The two carved marble lions rest on bases
which appear to be composed of cast concrete with a light gray
exposed aggregate. The bases are surrounded by a low pre-cast
shell-aggregate concrete curb.
The lions flank the west entrance to the Bridge of Lions on the
north and south.
A marble tablet on the east side of the northern base bears the
following inscription:

Gift from
ANDREW ANDERSON, MD
(1839 1924)

TO THE CITY OF
ST. AUGUSTINE
1926
FIEL Y FIRME


CONDITION: The carvings exhibit numerous hairline cracks, as do
the bases.

RECOMMENDATIONS:

1. Engage the services of a certified marble conservation firm
to clean and seal the marble surfaces of the carvings and the
tablet.

2. Apply a silicone-based waterproofer. Monitor condition. If
deterioration continues, consider acrylic-modified grouting.
