|Please look at Paddington Bear's face...he is saying, "GET THIS WOMAN AWAY FROM ME!"|
While we were in England, we were able to spend a few days in London. As we were walking on the South Bank, we just happened upon these benches. I wish I had known that they were there! I can see on their website, "Books About Town" that we were very close to other ones, but just didn't know it! They were all in honor of books, designed to look like an open book and they were on display only for a short time. As of today's date, Oct. 7th, they will be auctioned off and the proceeds will go to the National Literacy Trust.
(We saw Paddington Bear, Great Expectations and Shakespeare's London.)
By the way, when you walk a good distance, benches are very welcome to see! I felt a bit guilty sitting on these, but I got over it!
