Holborn Viaduct

The figures on the Holborn Viaduct are worth a closer look if you have a moment. They represent commerce, agriculture, fine art and this, science. I can't work out why they chose a steam governor for her to hold in her hand, and there is a mini statue just behind, showing a globe plugged into a battery.

Ham - I assume the use of the steam governor is a visual pun on the scales of justice.
