The Statue of J.B. Priestley
The statue of John Boynton Priestley stands proudly outside the National Media Museum, Bradford as a tribute to one of the cities favourite sons. Unveiled in 1986 by his wife Jacquetta Hawkes, the bronze statue features a plaque on the granite plinth with a quotation from his novel Bright Day.
J.B. Priestley was a novelist, scriptwriter, playwright and social commentator born in Mannigham a suburb of Bradford, West Yorkshire on the 13th September 1894. Some of his most famous works were An Inspector Calls, Laburnum Grove, and Jenny Villiers. He was still working in his 70's and died aged 89 on the 14th August 1984.
