Stan Laurel was born in Ulverston, Cumbria on 16th June 1890 at his grand parents’ house at 3 Argyle Street. This fantastic bronze statue of Stan and Ollie takes pride of place outside the Coronation Hall in the town. Now that the dark nights are here, the statue looks wonderful illuminated by the gas lamp.
I have a little quiz for you. Do you know the name of Stan and Ollie’s dog? You can just make him out by Ollie’s leg in the picture.
