Ghost #3

    The third ghost on the series is Francis Galbraith who established our local paper in 1906.

    Here he is reading his hot off the press paper and having a cup of coffee. 

   To me the artist caught the editor deep in thought while reading an article in his paper.


Yes, I got it right!

    1. Proof reading is OK for a few minutes but after that it gets stressful. I would be an extremely poor proff reader.

  7. I have missed this series, so guess I have to go back and read. I am amazed at how life-like bronze sculptures can be.

    1. I think they set a number of guide lines before the project started so size has something to do with these.

  10. I think I need to go back to the first two in the series. I like the way this statue seems to have captured a person in an ordinary act.

  15. Another great sculpture Red! I wonder how many business men these days though would go outside and relax for a moment like this. :)

  16. I LOVE this statue! I wonder if this man could be spotted reading his paper in such a manner, how people would walk by and greet him or stop to discuss the local news. This one definitely has my imagination piqued!
