“Copper and Hodge were co-operating on [a] major project, Hull Town Hall, for which the sculptor created colossal groups with female figures and animals. Albert Hodge was to die in 1917, aged only 42, and leaving two groups of Exportation and Father Thames, and single figure of Father Thames, for the Port of London Authority building, at sketch model stage. These works had to be scaled up and completed by his assistant, Charles Doman, who contributed two figures of his own to the building, and thereafter became Cooper's sculptor in chief.” — Ward-Jackson
