The Anonymous Widower

Dedicated To All the Lonely People

Eleanor Rigby is one of the Beatle’s most famous songs and one of the few songs, with its own sculpture.

Eleanor Rigby, Stanley Street, Liverpool

The sculpture was created by Tommy Steele, who is better known as a rock-and-roll singer and musical performer. He gave the sculpture to the City of Liverpool in honour of the Beatles.

I sat for a few moments with Eleanor and thought of C, who never saw the modern Liverpool.
