Statue of James Braidwood, first fire fighter

The statue of firemaster James Braidwood is already on the Royal Mile, Edinburgh.

From his Wikipedia entry:
"James Braidwood (1800 - 1861) founded the world's first municipal fire service in Edinburgh in 1824, and was the first director of the London Fire Brigade and is credited with the development of the modern municipal fire service."
