Description"A life-size sculpture of a fisher-woman carrying a basket, wearing a traditional shawl and full skirts represents the old North Shields tradition of the Wooden Dolly. There have been 'dollies' at various locations in the town for over 200 years [] The one standing here was carved in oak in 1958 by Robert Thompson Ltd. of Kilburn, Yorkshire, traditional furniture makers and craftsmen famous for their trademark of an often concealed small wooden mouse [] It replaced an earlier version erected here in 1902. http://www.tomorrows-history.com/public_item.php?collection=91&item=15077&flag=C" Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2013.
