On another subject, here's a rumour about the library.

On the topic of statues, I think it's worth adding pictures of the other statues on the trinity, both of which have much more splendid surroundings than our reclining nude. On which topic, there is from time to time a fund made available to create/improve pocket parks. I believe the area around the fountain would benefit. And we also have in Crouch End a relief of the Spirit of Electricity, bringer of heat and light, perhaps a cousin of Helios.
