The Guardians of Traffic

These art deco style pylons stand guard over the Lorain-Carnegie bridge (now known as the Hope Memorial Bridge) that separates the east and west side of Cleveland. The 8 figures were carved in sandstone and created by sculptor Henry Hering and architect Frank Walker. They were meant to “typify the spirit of progress in transportation”, so each figure holds a different form of ground transport.

Does anyone else remember when some of these statues were sporting Lebron headbands in his last season here? Even though it’s a bittersweet (or just bitter) memory for most Clevelanders, I like thinking about how the passionate and unified the city seemed in those last few games. It couldn’t have been easy to get those headbands on these humongous things. And where do you get giant, statue-sized headbands anyway?
