Notes NOTES: This is one of the images taken for 'Manplan 7: Local Government' in Architectural Review, vol. 148, 1970 July. The large-scale bronze by David Wynne, seen at the north end of the Ceremonial Way, releases water from the elevated hand, drenching the figure and symbolising the River Tyne.
