Weekly Photo Challenge: Monument

For 10 years I drove past this monument twice daily and although I was always curious about it I never once stopped to see why it was there. Today’s topic gave me a reason to go and check it out and I’m glad I did, John Benson is a person worth remembering.

 

I’m curious about the inscription, “Keep The Pavement Dry” and wonder if the good doctor often treated people who had slipped over on wet pavements. Ironically the monument originally had a fountain in the centre.

I’m a sister, wife, mother, grandmother, auntie and friend. I prefer to be outside and am interested in photography, nature and different cultures. I believe everything on this earth has a right to be here but some things and some people would be happiest if their space was far away from mine. (Flies and biting bugs take note!) I don’t like housework and think dust is Nature’s way of saying, “This is my space, I was here first.”
