Statue reads the newspaper. Statue Reading a Newspaper

A statue of a man reading a statue of a paper. If you care to sit with him you can read the paper too. I believe it's from the '30s or '40s.

It appears to be more recent -- the statue is supposed to be businessman Hans Helmerich. Also in Tulsa: a newspaper boy delivering bronze editions of the Tulsa Daily World from his bronze bike. It's at the Tulsa Daily World building.
