One of the stained glass windows in the historic Public Library in the Port Elizabeth city centre shows the picture of Mr WH Savage. I Googled the name but couldn’t find much and then turned to Margaret Harradine’s Port Elizabeth, A social chronicle to the end of 1945. William Savage was born in Kent in 1824 and came to Port Elizabeth in 1849. He had a business selling stationary and hardware and was a generous benefactor of several good causes both in Port Elizabeth and in Grahamstown. The library’s Savage Memorial Hall was also named after him.
