Re: Manilda G Raffe... my bad

The writing from Manilda is interesting. I wonder who she was. An internet search shows nothing, other than this post. The "dragon lady" looks scary. I bet a number of people like posing next to her. I've taken pictures of statues. Some of them are quite beautiful. My favorite is of Sacajawea in Washington Park in Portland, Oregon.

For some unknown reason to me, statues as a subject appeals to me.

A little edit: When I corrected the spelling of Manilda, I was then able to get some information about her. I not sure, but I think the "dragon lady" is supposed to be a "Victorian giraffe".

Thanks for spotting this error I made.  I thought the sculpture resembled a crocodile.

Thanks digi for keeping me in line, Mike
