Easter and April 1st

It seems that in 1907 Easter and April 1st fell together, hence the fish and the egg.  Happy Easter and I hope that you don't get caught out tomorrow on April Fool's Day.

I’m afraid that this beautiful, but sad statue seems to have come to a sad end. The detective work has been done here.
