Can I use "To the memory of" for a place in the dedication part of a book? for instance, can I write "to the memory of my childhood gardens, that do not exist anymore"? or is there another expression to use?
Note that my question is different from the question "What's the proper way to dedicate a paper with a “to the memory of”?", which is already answered in this forum. In fact, my question is about the usage of "to the memory of" for a place whereas in that question "to the memory of" is used for a person.
