            The Damage

Damage to the statue was extensive. the entire right arm was
broken off below the elbow. For years weather was
allowed to penetrate the monument through the break. The
good news is that the arm was salvaged.

Some of the embossed lettering was showing the effects of
time and pollution in need of preservation and some
restoration. The blue girder skirt was rusting to the point it is
an eyesore. The girder was cleaned and painted.  A
proper skirt providing the dignity such a monument warrants
should be installed.
