A few years ago I had to do a teaching gig in Providence, Rhode Island. Of course I had my cameras. Before and after teaching I walked around the city to take it in. This statue was at the bus station close to my hotel. It appeared to be guarding the people waiting on transport to various and sundry places. The visit was nostalgic as I later took a Greyhound bus into Boston to visit with friends I hadn't seen in what felt like forever.
