Hallelujah Bessie
A woman in a long blue skirt, white apron and yellow blouse raises her fist at an unseen provocation.

The poet, Donald Campbell has written a poem inspired by this character by Holt:

Hallelujah!
Up from the Abbey Strand
the parade will be progressing
with Bessie in command.
If you want her blessing
you need to mind your dressing
for there will be no messing -
Hallelujah!
while Bessie leads the band!
