The statue, 'Sunbeam Weekly and the Pilgrim’s Pocket' stands on the walkway at Cumberland Wharf. The work is by Peter McClean, depicting a newsboy in 1930’s dress, reading a copy of the newspaper telling the story of The Mayflower and all that has happened in America since those days. The pilgrim is reading the paper over the boy’s shoulder, looking astonished at how the world has developed since he landed at Plymouth Rock in 1620. The boy’s dog also appears to be trying to read the newspaper, standing on its hind legs.
