View of the River Humber Statue from the Trek Foundation of America

The statue was donated in 2001 to Kingston upon Hull by the Sea Trek Foundation of America as they retraced their descendants journey in tall ships from Northern Europe. Over 2,200.000 people passed through Kingston upon Hull and other Humber Ports to America between 1836 and 1914. 

I have photographed the statue as a whole and in parts, please comment as you see fit.

Hello Brian. This post made me curious to find out more so I googled the foundation. It has to do with the migration from Europe to America of those of the Mormon faith mostly. Interesting information. And the statue was commissioned for six cities including Hull; the others are Liverpool, Portsmouth, Glasgow, Hamburg and Oslo! Here is a link: http://www.ldschurchnewsarchive.com/articles/40203/Sea-Trek-will-leave-more-than-memories.html

Dear Sara, Thank you for the link, I should have thought of that, I will certainly look the people must have been brave way back then.
