Girl on a Suitcase Statue, Railway Station and Ferry Landing Stage, Kempock Street, Gourock
This lovely bronze statue was commissioned by Riverside Inverclyde Regeneration and created by Angela Hunter. It was unveiled in December 2011 and is located on a grass bank overlooking the 'new' Gourock Railway Station, Pierhead Ferry Landing Stage and the Firth of Clyde.

Just what is she waiting for ... is she going on holiday, or going home ... you can decide?

Around the base is the inscription ...
THE SWEETEST OF SONGS IS THE SONG OF THE CLYDE
