Readers Write and Statues on Benches

After yesterday’s post I received some emails from Graham and Charles Z. Thanks, guys. I will post Graham’s email today and Charles’s emails tomorrow. It looks like it might become a Readers Write Week.

Graham’s email and pics:
Hi Mr O, 
Further to the Alan Turning statue in Sackville Gardens, what about a bytes of famous people immortalised on park benches.....
Graham did, however, miss one that is the creepiest and most disturbing images of a statue on a park bench I could imagine. I will post that one at the end.

Springfield, Ilinois Lincoln statue

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Benjamin Franklin 

London, England Churchill and Roosevelt

Bratislava Slovakia Napoleon Bonaparte 

Havana, Cuba, John Lennon

Finchley, England Spike Milligan

Dublin, Ireland Patrick Kavanagh

And the one that is the stuff of nightmares . . .


PS

There is a website called Statue Molestors which posts pics sent in by people of themselves and others molesting statues. It contains risqué material but is amusing for those with a broader mind. Click on:
