John Hooper’s Sculptures

 “People Waiting” was made by Canadian sculptor John Hooper  in 1977 for Canada Post, and  stood in front of the Rothesay Avenue post office in St. John, New Brunswick for 30 years until Canada Post no longer wanted to pay for upkeep. The city of Saint John then stepped in and paid the $15,000 needed for refurbishment and moved the eleven life-sized wood figures to Barbour's General Store on King Street in downtown Saint John.
