January 15th 2016: Truelove in the river Hull

This was an oddity. Sticking up out of the river Hull, a distressed cylindrical pillar - looking as if it belonged there - topped with the word TRUELOVE and two model heads. Looking as if they don't belong there.

I thought it said TRUE LOVE (you can tell that from my sketch). But it doesn't. Truelove was a ship. The heads represent two young Inuit who were brought to Hull on the Truelove and died of measles. They don't belong there, really, do they?

Read the story here.
