Boy and the Boot.

Boy and the Boot

Field review by the editors.

Baker City, Oregon

This Boy and the Boot once stood in front of the county courthouse, and probably arrived the same year that it opened: 1908. The fountain in which he stood is still there, but the Boy was moved into the courthouse lobby on June 9, 1975. His formerly battered appearance has been repaired and given a gilded finish, and his protective glass showcase suggests that he should be viewed as a valuable work of art.
