The portrait bench is one of a series of benches that are part of a national Sustrans project, which helps people to make more of their everyday journeys by foot, bike and public transport. Local residents chose Kitty Wilkinson for her pioneering work in national public health and Molly Bushell the founder of the Everton Toffee Shop. 'The Dock Worker' was selected for his role as a vital labourer at the heart of Liverpool's industrial revolution. (Photo by Christopher Furlong/Getty Images)
