Arts and Craft (Post#21) : The Lord McAlpine by Linda Klarfeld
Photo of the day is about the statue of Lord McAlpine. While I was learning about the town, I came across a lot of times about the name of Robert Alistair McAlpine. From Broome Historical Museum, in Sun Pictures, at Cygnet Bay, in Matso’s Brewery and then in Cable Beach. My impression with him was, he made a lot of things for Broome. When I found his statue, I was not really surprised anymore because it was evident that he made a lot of contribution to the town. And because of him, Broome were able to survive as it lost for decades after the war. I can truly say that with this kind of people giving so much to the town, Broome itself is no doubt that its honoring the people whom it made the town what is it now. The statue was made by Linda Klarfeld a Czech immigrant became Australian and sculptor whose bronze and granite works of art focus on the human figure. The photo is part of 2 Days Broome and Surround Tour October 2016.
