Photographer's Note

In the middle of Port Sunlight, is a statue in memory of its founder, Lord Leverhulme.

Created by William Reid Dick in 1930, it is two parts; the four figures shown here suggest Industry, Education, Charity and Art. The second feature of the tribute is a large pylon, with a figure suggesting Inspiration.

Much may be said about Lord Leverhulme, and not all without controversy. Others can say it better than me here in so few words, but suffice it for me to say a visit to his creation at Port Sunlight is truly inspirational.

The statue pictured is outside the Lady Leverhulme Art Gallery, well worth a few hours visit. Or more !

1776
