Taking part in ABC Wednesday where we reach the letter "F". Abraham Lincoln has a statue and a square named after him. From yesterday many statues in Manchester and London come to life and talk to you.
I have been so excited about this innovative artistic venture and spent breakfast time this morning nattering with Abe- conversation was a bit one way but I was intrigued to hear his message to the cotton workers of Lancashire.
Fantastic talking statues, I want to visit and hear them all! I'll have one year to do so...
Back to Abe's statue and I have seen some grainy video footage of the unveiling in 1919. There was also an interesting Guardian article about the origins of the statue and the northern States' connections with Lancashire cotton mills.
