Tom, please explain what is going on. Are stilts involved?

Ernest , I'm affraid I can't say what the display was supposed to represent,surfice to say it was a busking event. As to stilts, the second man must be using such contraptions, otherwise he surley would be in record books!. Street entertainment of this sort does no harm,in fact,add a little variety to our town centres,and it is up to the individual ,to support the participants,or not,as you choose. Regards Tom.

I like your photo Tom and I also love street entertainment - I just always seem to be in the wrong street and miss it!

The `statue` man, dressed in white attire, was in Standishgate again today, near to and on same side as B & M.
It`s the loud `rock` music in public places that I object to.
