One Thing Tuesday

 


This rather folorn looking gentleman is known as "Melancholy Man" and is claimed to be London's saddest statue. He stands tucked away largely unnoticed in a niche in Holland Park and I only snapped him in passing as I was leaving. Nothing is known about him except that he's made from limestone and may date from the 16th century. For those who watch "Who do you think you are?" Holland Park was recently featured in the episode about Josh Widdicombe.

    1. He is isn't he. Even when I shared this on one of the London FB groups hardly anybody who had been to Holland Park had noticed him. Arilx

  2. Poor old guy - I wonder why he was so sad. I hope you feel better soon - a cold must feel strange after a couple of years without.

    1. I really enjoy the programme so long as the person they're doing it on keeps it real. Some of the actors have been really hammy in their reactions! Arilx

Oops I did it again!

 Not for the first time I managed to schedule today's intended post for the wrong date so it's already gone live before the event so...
