Arthur Louis Aaron – Statue detail

Picture of Arthur Louis Aaron DFM VC detail of statue, Leeds.

I first wrote about Arthur Aaron back shortly after I started the Leeds Daily Photo.

I thought it was about time I revisited this interesting statue to Arthur Aaron DFM VC, a son of Leeds.

One small thing, since I first posted about Arthur Aaron I have met the sculptor who created the statue that stands on the roundabout at the bottom of Eastgate opposite the Police station. Barnsley artist Graham Ibbeson is perhaps best known for the statue of Eric Morcambe, in the seaside town of the same name. Graham Ibbeson also created the statue of famous Yorkshire cricketer Fred Trueman that stands at the canal basin of the town of Skipton in N Yorkshire.

The above picture shows only a small detail of the statue in memory of this ‘old boy’ of Roundhay School, Leeds.

How I got Here...
I was walking down to make a coffee in Saltaire at Massarella's Art Gallery where my friend at a shop. I was mooching about there... My good friend Ellen used to a medical rep. She then said i dont want to worry you but I have called 999 for a ambulance... She then said look at the mirror in bathroom.... then.. I woke in hospital...
Then 5 months later... I have become Disabled.. Stroke, I lost ... job, flat, not mention my car... now at last I look much better...
So much for dreams... I ran with that for about 5 years, every day taking a photograph to put on site.
