The Irish Imitators...

We continue our little excursion around Boston this evening. I believe that this memorial commemorates the Irish potato famine between 1845 and 1850, and symbolises the fact that there is a large Irish immigrant population in Boston, which magnified during this period. As my research has been a little poor, I shall just say that it may or may not have something to do with the Boston Irish Famine Memorial Park

The monument features a man and a woman reaching out to each other, both of who are holding a child. This has been brilliantly recreated by Luke and Chris, who, at the time did not have a couple of young children with them so expertly substituted them with their jumpers!
