The names of famous English Governors are immortalized in Sri Lankan history with prominent streets being named after them. One such street is Ward Place, named after British Governor Sir Henry George Ward.
Henry George Ward
11th Governor of British Ceylon
Monarch:Â Queen Victoria
Sir Ward on 11 May 1855 became governor of Ceylon. His first speech, that year, dealt with railways; he developed also economic policy on communications and telegraphy, and immigrant labour. He also consolidated the public administration.
Examples of colonial art and architecture were present on the street which has now changed beyond recognition.
