I was asked to post pictures of
Vulcan. I had to get these two
off the Internet. It was difficult
to get a good picture of Vulcan
with my camera.
Vulcan, Roman god of forge - the
world's largest cast iron statue.
Created by Guiseppe Moretti, to
promote Birmingham's iron industry
at the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair.
Vulcan and his WPA pedestal stand
182 feet atop Red Mountain overlooking
the city of Birmingham. A few years ago
due to deterioration the statue was taken
down in pieces and had a make over. It is
now back to its old glory.
