In London, so off to find a sculpture I have seen many times in books but never up close for myself. ‘Allies’ can be found where Old Bond Street meets New Bond Street in the Mayfair area of London. It was unveiled by Princess Margaret in 1995. FDR and Churchill are found in conversation on a bench and there is just room to squeeze in between them.
The statue is made of bronze and is the work of sculptor Lawrence Hofocener. It was the gift of the Bond Street Association to commemorate 50 years of peace from the end of the Second World War. It is interesting to note that there was no space for the third ‘ally’ in the Second World War.
