Peter Kirschmann, Eve MacLeish, Brenda Morrow, Jean Morrow, and Pamela Rivera knew that the December Phillips What Where photo was at the corner of 26th Street and Hiawath Avenue.

No one told us what it is exactly nor who did it nor that we featured the beginning of this sculpture on the front page of The Alley, July 2010.

But Eve came the closest with the following narrative so she wins this month’s gift certificate to Welna Hardware. “The image of the plow-truck sculpture is part of the decorative wall metal sculptures along Hiawatha Avenue at 26th St, between 26th and 28th.

The first part of the decoration, the metal mesh, aged nicely into rust before the vehicle sculptures went up. I enjoy this every morning on my way to work!”
