Statue, Custom House Square, Belfast (1)
The Custom House steps, Belfast, used to be a place (in the times before television) where people went on a Sunday afternoon to watch (and, presumably, heckle) the evangelists and public speakers in action. The tradition seems to have died with WWII. This statue, recently erected at the foot of the steps, is entitled “The Speaker”. As seems to be the current fashion it is not mounted on a plinth.
