The man with the golden scroll

5 Feb

There was idle talk sometime back of moving this column back to its original place by Monument Bridge but, surprisingly, wise heads prevailed and it’s staying where it is. However this being the year of culture the scroll, held for so many years in old William Wilberforce’s right hand, has been given a coating of gold leaf. So if your click on the picture to enlarge it and peer, possibly with the help of a magnifying glass, you might just about make out the most useless adornment to a statue in many a long year.
