Standing Proud

By Philip_H
Taken in Kingston upon Hull, England.

From left to right are:

The Wilberforce Monument – an immense Doric column, 90ft (27.5 metres) high, of 1834 by John Clark of Leeds, topped by a statue of William Wilberforce (1759-1833) – England’s most celebrated anti-slave trade campaigner and a son of Hull;
St Mary’s church tower, Lowgate (first mentioned in 1327);
Corner turret with conical slate roof and sailing ship weathervane, old City Record Office;
Guildhall tower surmounted by a time-ball.

Thanks for all the C&Cs on 'Carousel'.

Best wishes,
Philip

Such a rich combo of history and culture and you made it look so damn good too. I love these efforts of pleasing design from the past. Today's modern stuff? Not so much. TG

History at roof-top level, interesting and unusual. It always pays to look up.
