So not the same sculptor.....and yet they look similar in style.
I did not know who the sculptors were and was too idle to search....so Thankyou Ryewolf for furthering my education yet again.
You can always learn something on Accyweb....one thing is Never Bet! and certainly not with your life(though mine is old and tatty).

Re: Today in pictures

I only knew because I've photographed them both before, several times, and had researched who the sculptors were. The image of the one outside Elmfield Hall I took earlier this month.

I've also photographed the one in Oak Hill Park, the WWI memorial which was designed by Sir Charles Herbert Reilly, the sculptor was Herbert Tyson Smith.

The war memorial in Oswaldtwistle was produced by Louis Frederick Roslyn, he also created the memorials in Clitheroe, Darwen, Haslingden and Rawtenstall.

Re: Today in pictures

While home the other week I visited a good friend (Ex Military mate) who lives down on Mersea Island. On the approach to the Island they've been paying their respects to local lads who fell in the "Great War".


I also eventually managed to visit the National Arboretum in Staffordshire, a very moving & emotional experience (in particular the Bastion memorial wall, KRA Elliot being for me the most significant).

Re: Today in pictures

Hi Ryewolf90,

Forgive my ignorance, but what was the occasion?

Cheers

Re: Today in pictures

It was part of the British Textile Biennial Festival.

This was celebrating the pioneering Blackburn Film-makers Mitchell and Kenyon and the centenary of the Cotton Exchange becoming a cinema.

In 1899 Mitchell and Kenyon produced KIDNAPPING BY INDIANS, a film that is now recognised as the first western ever made
