Arthur Louis Aaron - Statue detail

Arthur Louis Aaron Leeds
Picture of Arthur Louis Aaron DFM VC detail of statue, Leeds.

I first wrote about Arthur Aaron back shortly after I started the Leeds Daily Photo.

I thought it was about time I revisited this interesting statue to Arthur Aaron DFM VC, a son of Leeds.

One small thing, since I first posted about Arthur Aaron I have met the sculptor who created the statue that stands on the roundabout at the bottom of Eastgate opposite the Police station. Barnsley artist Graham Ibbeson is perhaps best known for the statue of Eric Morcambe, in the seaside town of the same name. Graham Ibbeson also created the statue of famous Yorkshire cricketer Fred Trueman that stands at the canal basin of the town of Skipton in N Yorkshire.

The above picture shows only a small detail of the statue in memory of this 'old boy' of Roundhay School, Leeds.


  1. A stunning photo- the black and white and light make it really striking.

  2. Really atmospheric shot that does justice to the subject.


Thanks so much for visiting my Leeds in Yorkshire photography blog
and for your much appreciated comments. If you leave a question relating to today's photograph or commentary, I'll do my best to give an answer, so do come back later. Thanks.
