Bottles in the window of a barber’s shop on Dean Street, Newcastle.  As we walked by, the barber came out, helping an elderly client navigate his wheeled walking aid out of the shop and up the steeply sloped pavement.  A drunken passerby called out ‘hello’ to him and he replied ‘All right, bonny lad?’


I thought this sculpture in Newcastle referred to Britain’s part in the slave trade, but I discovered this evening that he’s a River God, by Andre Wallace.
