Scanterbury, Manitoba, Canada: Big Chair Monument to the Waving Men

Hwy 59, Scanterbury, MB, Canada
Brokenhead Ojibwa Reserve, somewhere along Hwy 59.
Big Chair Monument to the Waving Men
Two brothers, Nelson and James Starr, spent 20 years sitting in lawn chairs along the highway, waving to traffic. Local fan built the giant red and white wooden tribute to the "Wavers of Brokenhead" in 2012. There's a gas station/store named "Wavers," so perhaps they know something.... [ Team]
