This giant Safety (Nappy) pin is typical of the humour of the late artist George Wyllie who constructed it for these gardens which are on the site of a former Maternity Hospital. It was originallly called 'Just in case'.
It was also used at a couple of other locations on a temporary basis including Portsmouth where the idea was that it could symbolise 'attachment to the European Community' - very topical at the moment.
I'm a bit behind at the moment as my upgrade to Superfast Broadband didn't go as smoothly as it miight. Lost my phone line and internet totally for the best part of a day. Just trying to catch up a bit just now before I go offline for a while again.
