New Mary Barbour statue in Govan

Two weeks ago, a statue of Mary Barbour was unveiled at Govan Cross. Mary Barbour led rent strikes in 1915 against unscrupulous landlords and the statue, sculpted by Andrew Brown, features Barbour leading folk to fight for their rights. I particularly like the boys holding up placards with the words ‘We Want Justice’ and ‘The Will Of The People Is Law’. Anyway, I went down the day after the statue was unveiled and I was particularly happy to see a few folk taking photographs or otherwise having a nosy. Here are some photos I took on my phone:
