  • This is a statue of the Dr Samuel Johnson, who worked on the famous "A Dictionary of the English Language". As for the statue, it's okay. It looks kind of comical. I'd expected something better for a man of such significance. I wouldn't go out of the way to see it, but fine if you're in the area.
