Mr Gladstone

Went back to the Museum last week. Finally got round to taking a picture of Mr Gladstone. Quite a status which is kept inside for safe keeping, not from vandalism but for environmental reasons. Sort of good to follow on the history of the place. They also had a photographic display taken of 100 prominent women in the town. Think I mentioned this a few posts back. Bob and I had another look and were still impressed with the quality of the shots. Seemed somehow to capture their personalities , so much so that after looking at one for a few minutes you felt that should you meet her in the street you could just start a conversation as if you had know them for ages.

So Gladstone, it does so remind me of Thetford and my time of growing up there as a young boy. There we had Thomas Paine as a status and here Gladstone. Similarities and extreme views on how things should be done. One Royalist and one a Republican.
