Russian memorial to Captain Cook


Mr Yuri Dunaev, the Russian amateur artist who is an air-traffic controller at Cape Schmidt (sic), formerly North Cape, within the Arctic Circle in Chukotka, has recently completed a monument to Captain Cook at Cape Schmidt and the 180 degrees Greenwich Meridian. It has been built single-handedly, at his own expense at Cape Schmidt, a small settlement of a few thousand people.
