Figures in the fence

hull_20091011_0001

These figures are part of an ornately designed fence, they are located on the boardwalk on the west side of the River Hull near the Drypool Bridge, as far as I can work out they represent the Cities maritime heritage, whaling, fishing, sailing, not sure about the man with the wheelbarrow or the figure with the ball and spoon / racket, can anyone enlighten me?
