Statue of 19th century poet – Dalpatram outside his house. The house was destroyed in 1985. They recreated the house based on old photographs and information from people who live nearby.
Continuing in my exploration of iconic London scenes, here is one I took this weekend while exploring the area around Tower Bridge. The statue is by David Wynne who is well known for sculptures which give the illusion of movement and flying unsupported. The very modern Shard in the background is nicely juxtaposed against historic Tower Bridge.
