Around the World M-Man.

World's Fair Muffler Man

Field review by the editors.

Lake George, New York

A fiberglass Paul Bunyan stands at Around the World Golf, a miniature golf attraction along the southern shore of Lake George. He brandishes a double-edged ax while visitors putt between his legs.

A sign notes:"Paul Bunyan obtained from New York World's Fair." This is the third Muffler Man we've noted to make this claim, and all three may be true.

Around the World Golf is an attraction in its own right, with artwork including a big Indian (not a Muffler Man), a huge Mexican sombrero, pyramids, and a giant German beer stein. It's been open since 1963.
