    The Leicester based Lennards shoe factory apparantly changed their name to Liberty shoes after a visit to New York in 1920, and built a 'minature' outside the factory, such was their admiration.
    After the factory was demolished in 2005 the statue was relocated unfortunately there is no plaque to explain it's origins.
