Bournemouth: the silver man in The Square
Bournemouth: the silver man in The Square
A common and popular weekend feature of SZ0891 : Bournemouth: The Square, the silver man stands dead still, as if a statue, until someone puts some money in the pot whereupon he bends down, rather robotically, and offers a brief handshake before adopting his pose once more. Occasionally when people walk past very close by, he waves his hand right in front of them, scaring the living daylights out of the poor victim but providing amusement to passers by.

In the background is a SZ0891 : Bournemouth: continental market in The Square.
