Clapham Couple 1877

At the junction of New Park Road, Emmanuel and Thornton Avenue, these worn metal figures keep a low profile beneath a weathered fence. Never noticed them before, don’t know what they are but imagine them, an old couple from a bygone age, waiting to cross the road. A Metal Henge a la Henry Moore. They remind me of my next door neighbours, the marvellous octogenarian flat cap Percy and his wife Hilda. Sent from my BlackBerry?? wireless device
