> Monday, February 13, 2006: The Mechanics Monument


(click the thumbnail above for a larger format)

As the Douglas Tilden statue featured earlier on this photo raised some curiosities, here's a closeup of another one of Tilden's works located on Market street. This one is entitled The Mechanics Monument and has been around for a little over a hundred years. Plenty of info on this bronze sculpture can be found here.

Do you have "Mechanics Institutes" there? (submitted on February 13, 2006)  

Check your map location, it shows the Marina when it should be at Market and Battery. (submitted on February 13, 2006)  

Michael: yes we do, it's actually just 2 or 3 blocks away from this sculpture, here's the website if you want to check it out.

Chromedome: thanks, I just corrected it (little copy/paste glitch...)
