September 8th – Returning to Brownhills, I passed Morris, the Brownhills Miner, standing sentry as he has done for over a decade now.
I love Morris. I think most everyone does. It’s not the history for me so much as the technical achievement of his method of creation and the sheer skill in the metalwork.
A fine piece of art, and a tour de force of engineering for it’s creator, John McKenna.
And also, my beacon of home. This Iron Man is definitely a hometown hero.
