“the real hero of the hoover dam”

On the main drag of this tiny community of 15,000 residents, not far from the shores of Lake Mead, he stands in an immortal pose, 8 feet tall with his wide-brimmed sun hat, long-sticked broom slung over his shoulder — all in bronze, right down to the garland of spare toilet paper rolls around his neck. Alabam's is one of several statues erected around this former federal company town to memorialize Hoover Dam workers and their families. The work crews included "high-scalers" who hung suspended from flimsy guide ropes; "powder-monkeys," named for the dynamite they planted; cable operators who kept the concrete buckets moving around the clock; not to mention the wives and children who set up camp not far away, making a life out of what was then a bleak desert wilderness. But there out front, the first of the statues to greet visitors on their way into Boulder City's old town area, stands Alabam.

Boulder City's old town is a really nice, clean, friendly place. We went to see the Alabam statue (and a few others) and had breakfast at the "World Famous Coffee Cup", then had a stroll around before heading for the dam.

Definitely worth a stop on the way to or from Hoover Dam.
