|Sited at what used to be called the "Sailor's Families" Society Shop, now the "National seamen's Welfare Mission". The flying fish is traditionally a symbol of good fortune for sailors.|
The fish start on the pavement and then leap up into the stone beneath the shop window before landing into the pavement again.
