Um, excuse me sir, can I have a word, please?

As promised in the throws of a rather witty repartee with blogger MobileRik, this week, despite the downpour, we took a moment to sneak a peek at the iron-clad pages of the newspaper that’s kept this fellow’s attention for many, many years now. Can you just hear the reply: “Why certainly, dear. Which section do you fancy?”

Iron-clad journalism, that.

How does the public art in your “little corner of the world” (as my daughter likes to call our hometown) inspire you?
