Colt Park

Samuel Colt was an important arms maker in the 19th century.    The Colt .45 pistol is the one most associated with Colt Manufacturing.  I know very little about firearms, so I will refer readers to Wikipedia, since, as you know, everything on the internet is true.

This is part of a statue in the Hartford park honoring him.  The youth represents Colt when he was a young sailor.  Above him is the main statue of Colt   as a powerful industrialist.  I don't like that part of the statue, so I didn't photograph it.

Both statue and patina are wonderful!
"... since, as you know, everything on the internet is true" - very funny! :-)

Your colt is looking a bit worn. I think he needs a polish. :)
