I've decided to join in with Five on Friday. It's a weekly meme that I read on other people's blogs but haven't joined before. It's celebrating its anniversary this week. That means it has a history! (See the bottom of the post for a link to find other blogs that join in.)
Here's five sculptures that commemorate some history of their own. Enjoy.
a post on my other blog, about the tunny fishing club in Scarborough in the 1930s. The sculpture is by Ray Lonsdale and this is just a detail of it. Huge fish used to swim just offshore in the North Sea and anglers caught them with rod and line in spectacular battles against the very powerful animals. I suppose it depends on your view of "sport" but it was popular with the rich and famous.
