16. David Campbell (The Baby Chair)

This tiny stone chair with the baby booties on the seat is located beside a main carriageway.

Many people, especially children, stop to look at it. Some leave little offerings of flowers, seashells, pine cones or pebbles on the grave of the baby they never knew.

It is the grave of David Campbell who died in 1913 at age 17 months. The inscription reads “A little Hero”.
