The shell ladies of Margate
There's been something amazing happening in Margate. These wonderful shell ladies (7-ft high!) have been promenading around town. Created by sculptor Ann Carrington, they are named and modelled after notable local women like Fanny Newlove who founded the spectacular Margate Shell Grotto. Sadly these lovely ladies took their last walk yesterday but a permanent bronze version is due to be unveiled later this month. Found in mondoagogo's always excellent photostream.
