Cabbie’s Curios: In Town

In Town‘, a cheerful sculpture depicting two parents holding their young child aloft, can be viewed close to the southern end of Battersea Bridge.

The piece was created in 1983 by John Ravera, a sculptor who trained at the Camberwell School of Art and whose outdoor works can be spotted at various locations across the UK, Hong Kong and Tokyo. John passed away in 2006.

Originally, ‘In Town‘ incorporated a little bird towards which the child was reaching, but this feature is now sadly missing.

  2. It looks superb. I can’t believe I’ve never seen it!

  3. I am about to embark into doing the knowledge.
    What best advice one can give to someone who is
    Unsure of being able to use a scooter.
    Many thanks

    1. A scooter is simply the recommended method… you can use any transport you wish. Car, bicycle, by foot… even a skateboard! It’s up to you, as long as you travel the routes and note the points.
