'Waiting' - The Liverpool Carters Working Horse Monument
'Waiting' - The Liverpool Carters Working Horse Monument, taken 5 years ago
Called "Waiting", the statue — a life-size bronze Shire — was designed by sculptor Judy Boyt to commemorate the horses’ efforts during the Second World War.
Heavy horses were a vital cog in the war effort, carting food and raw materials from the docks to the city when vehicles and fuel became scarce.
