I had half an hour to spare before the start of the Old Gits meeting in Huddersfield yesterday so I walked around the town enjoying the blue skies and sharp temperatures. My photograph shows one of the two wonderful stone sculptures that flank the Central Library and Art Gallery. The statues, by James Woodford R.A. (1893-1976), depict the youthful spirits of literature and arts (I am not quite sure which this one is). Shortly after taking the photograph I was sat in the back room of the Sportsman in the company of my fellow Old Gits discussing books, films, art and music whilst washing the conversation down with flagons of ale. The youthful spirits should not have things all their own way.
