SP0986 : The Head aka Blue Nose

taken 10 years ago, near to Birmingham, Great Britain

The Head aka Blue Nose
The Head aka Blue Nose
In Birmingham a supporter of Birmingham City FC (aka Small Heath Alliance) is known as a Blue Nose. This statue, near the home ground of the club, is officially called 'The Head'. However, shortly after it was erected some local wag painted its nose blue. With the short exception of time when a Villa fan improved (so they thought) the colour scheme to claret & blue, the nose has remained blue ever since. To be hoped some idiot does not go along & paint it dayglo yellow, but then maybe!
