In the modern landscaped square in front of the Municipal Buildings there is a statue and plaque named The Men of the Clyde (images 1 and 2). Comissioned in 1975, it was designed by Naomi Hunt, DA, and sculpted by Malcolm Robertson, DA.
The design was inspired by the paintings of WW2 official war artist Sir Stanley Spencer who depicted the local wartime shipbuilding effort. It also commemorates all who died working in the shipyards during the war years.
