Charity Collection Statue

A 35mm transparency that I'd taken sometime in the mid 1980s. It's a close-up image of one of those ubiquitous charity collection statues that stand outside chemist shops. I cannot recall in which street it was taken - but I do remember going through a phase of photographing the world through a 'fisheye' lens that I'd borrowed from a friend. 

I wonder how much money this rather sad-looking lad collected for charity during his lifetime of being stared at in all weathers by the passing show?

A street without passers-by, and no-one to play with...
