This sculpture is such good fun I enjoyed searching for it. It is quite a surprise on top of the public toilets but certainly brightened my day.

Visible if you are driving along past the Regent towards town this unusual sculpture sits proudly atop the toilet block. Fun piece which will raise a smile!

My 5 year old grandson absolutely loves this statue & shouts "Nanny, it's the man" every time we go past it in the car or walk into town! I think it's very clever & love the flies, especially on a Public toilet!

Spotted this on our walk around this historic town. Did not realise it had a name! Unusual and interesting.

This statue makes me laugh every time I see it. A cartoon Major in uniform with a fly swat beating away at some quite large flies. The appropriate setting mentioned in the title is that it sits on top of a public toilet. Ipswich has...More
