Victory Over Blindness statue, Manchester Piccadilly Station
Victory Over Blindness statue, Manchester Piccadilly Station
The statue has been created in bronze by artist Johanna Domke-Guyot, and shows seven war-blinded First World War soldiers in a line, supporting each other with arms on shoulders. Manchester Piccadilly is a particularly apt place for the statue, as it is there that many soldiers would have arrived back from the conflict before entering rehabilitation.
