J B Priestley Statue

     I was on my way to the library today and decided to stop and take a picture of this statue of Bradford author and broadcaster J B Priestley.  If someone had asked me how long the statue has been there I would have said ten, maybe fifteen years at the most.  After a quick read of the brass plaque on the rear of the statue I realised that it's been there for twenty five years, time flies.   Priestley drew on memories of Bradford in many of the works he wrote, but he is probably most famous for his wartime broadcasts by the BBC which drew an audience of sixteen million listeners.
