Sculpture called "People Waiting" was created by the British of Canadian origin John Hooper in 1977 for the main post office located in the city of Rotsay.

Over time, wooden sculptures began to wear out and lose their attractive appearance. After repairing the post office from sculptures, they wanted to get rid of, but they carefully bought another city – Saint John.

Saint-John city authorities repaired and re-painted all sculptures, after which they were posted on the main street of the city – King Street.

In addition to the sculpture, "People are waiting for" John Hooper also created sculptures "Chronometer" and "People walking together in different directions", located in St. John.

The sculpture "chronometer" is a low tower at the entrance to the market square, on which various people can be noticed, each of which is somehow connected over time.

Sculpture "People walking together in different directions" shows a peak hour in one of the underground transitions.
