One of four very large Art Deco sculptures at each corner of the nearly 1,800 meter-long Hope Memorial Bridge in Cleveland, Ohio USA. Each statue, called "The Guardians of Transportation" represents four different modes of transport. Just peeking over frame bottom is the Cleveland skyline. The bridge was completed in 1932.
