Birstall, W Yorkshire - Unveiling statue of Joseph Priestly

Birstall, W Yorkshire - Unveiling the statue of Joseph Priestly on 12th October 1912 - at this point the unveiling party had adjourned to the Temperance Hall. Following the tragic assassination of the MP Jo Cox on 16th June 2016 (almost within sight of this statue), thousands of flowers were placed around it in remembrance. Priestly (1733-1804) was a 18th-century English theologian, dissenting clergyman, natural philosopher, chemist, educator, and Liberal political theorist who supported the French Revolution and campaigned for the legal and civic rights of Dissenters. In Jo Coxs humanitarian campaigning can almost been seen a distant echo of Priestly, making the recent spontaneous memorial very apt indeed. Date: 1912
