Sculpture corner

On what would have been his birthday, the statue to Yuri Gagarin in London.

When I was a child, Gagarin had a cult status as 'the first spaceman', and there is a street in Cowdenbeath named after him.

This street, rather than Gagarin himself, inspired the stage play, Gagarin Way.

Article on the statue here.

***UPDATE****

There's a Gagarin Terrace in Kilwinning as well.
