Not quite the statue one would expect to find in the English city of Manchester, but there you go. It was on the map of the do-it-yourself walking tour, so it must be important. Actually, I gather it's something along the lines of Manchester supporting...More

As others have said, the quote is very difficult to read. The hands on the statue are also way out of proportion. I wouldn't necessarily go out of my way to view it, but it is of historical interest nevertheless
