From Russia With Love.....This Bench?
That is the question.
When I discovered this creation I was disappointed that there was no information (that I could see) telling me about it. Well, I have since learned that Coventry was first twinned (in 1944) with Stalingrad, Russia. And, Stalingrad has since changed its name to Volgograd (in 1961). To mark the 65th Anniversary of the twinning of these two Cities, Volgograd presented a bench and other gifts to Coventry. Could this be the bench which is said to be located in Hales Street somewhere between Volgograd Place and the Peace Gardens. Most likely, 'Yes'. In the meantime....I think this bench is a work of art.
