Now it has moved on a step, and his photo is being circulated again.

Somebody on the internet has taken John’s photo and turned it into a version of the Ghostbusters monster, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, by adding a sailor’s hat and collar.

Quite appropriate, for a famous maritime town and port.
