The Clothier sculpture, New Walk, Leicester
The Clothier sculpture, New Walk, Leicester, taken 6 years ago
This sculpture by John Atkin was commissioned by the Friends of New Walk, at a cost of around 30,000. It was unveiled in 2010, and stands near the New Walk Bridge, over Waterloo Way. One of the plaques attached to the plinth usefully explains that "This John Atkin sculpture celebrates the contribution of the Clothing Industry to the prosperity of the City and County of Leicester". Unfortunately in recent decades a lot of that prosperity has drained away, as most of the clothes which were once made in Leicester, are manufactured in cheap labour countries.
