I like how the sculptor chose to give Hans Sloane droopy stockings...how human! This is a fantastic shot but I'm happy we don't dress like this anymore ;-)

I love the ultra classical statue (copie) against the modern background and now I know who he was. (Blush), I spent so much time on Sloane street and Sloane square when I was young!...
