>As he rides off into the sunset – #535


Saint Martin gets everywhere.

And so he should, being a true heir to the Good Samurai or whatever his name was.

There’s the modern statue next to the Martinus School and I’ve just discovered this one overlooking the city on the Kupferberg Terrace.

Had a fairly peripatetic career.

Spent the first 150 years perched on the West Choir of the Dom, got replaced by a sandstone replica in 1926 and spent the next 70 or so years guarding the entrance to the Stahlberg Fort.

Only been here for 8 years.

I wouldn’t get to used to the view, if I were him.

They’ll probably be moving him again soon enough…..
