One thing that’s highly noticeable here in this artsy city of Portland, Maine is the vast array of historical statues.

Who are they?
What did they accomplish?

I find it better 2 know who these lifeless pieces of metal were – than not – while making the daily pass….

For starters, I came across this particular one & was impressed by the swagga stance. Pretty cool pose for a statue named “Czar”.

Portland native

Civil War Veteran.

Maybe it’s just another excuse 2 pull out the camera & simply shoot something.

Then again, no excuse needed.


Peace!…with 2 fingers;)
