Richard Cobden statue, Mornington Crescent
Richard Cobden statue, Mornington Crescent
This statue of the Anti-Corn Law campaigner Richard Cobden stands at a junction of roads outside Mornington Crescent tube station. He had no particular connection with the locality - the statue is simply a mark of the respect in which he was held as a pioneer of free trade - although rather strangely he acquired a connection with Camden Town some years after the statue went up: the painter Walter Sickert, who lived nearby and whose distinctive art gave rise to the term the "Camden Town School" of painting, was a relative of Cobden by marriage.
