That’s it for the People Statues! The next blog post, I’ll be moving on to the Art Deco/Streamline Moderne Buildings section. I have six more sections but they are biggies. To be precise, I am only 38% done with this project. To come, in order (and in order of their size): Movie Theatres, Eateries, Gas Stations, Signs, and then Mid-Century Modern Buildings.

Happy trails,
dj & the dogs
