Also on Promenade Hill

Thursday's Gossips post about the plans to repaint the fence on Promenade Hill inspired John Cody to share a picture he'd taken that morning of St. Winifred, the sculpture that graces the promenade, and a news item reporting the unveiling of the statue on September 28, 1896. Because, on this fifth day of spring, it's raining and dismal and we could use some cheering up, I share the photo and the clipping here. Imagine 5,000 people turning out to witness the unveiling of St. Winifred!
