Photo-a-Day (Wednesday, 22nd November, 2006)
Sir Francis Sharp Powell
Photo: Brian (Fuji Finepix S7000)
when I were a young lass everyone that passed by this statue used to rub its foot (not in picture) and it were shiny as awt. Do't young 'uns still do't same?
Hi daghda - Yes they do. Its not just the young 'uns, I had a go last week. ;o)
One of the photos you have from me show my brother and his friends draped around him - it must have been taken before 1941 - that was when most of them were called up
when i look at Sir Francis Sharp Powell he looks deep in thought. i wonder hat he would think of the world today?
I wonder perhaps or he was an ancestor of Baden . Hope rubbing his foot brought you all good luck,perplexes me Brian why you didn't include this in photo so I agree with you Margaret sudworth this thoughtful,thinking gentleman would be appalled.
