The Captain arrives and the eagle landed

and thanks to Henery Hawk we have the photos!


Please check Henery’s site for more photos of the arrival and also the “Lorain Eagle” http://www.locophotogblog.com/?p=151It was quite a busy couple of days . Bud Emerson was just about finished with the Sea Captain and also had an eagle he has donated to the City of Lorain. Well the Lorain Eagle was easy to get to his new home in City Hall , 7th Floor BUT the approx nine foot ship’s captain, that was a different story.

Because Ct Consultants , who are one of the sponsors for this carving are still working next to the area on 2nd street, we cannot at the moment proceed with the landscaping plans


so like the the Barnes Tribute carving

he would have to find a temporary home.

Thanks to Rick Novak and Ralph Bruening of the Lorain Port Authority the Captain is on display at Black River Landing and Bud will be finishing him up with the detailing and preservatives at Black River Landing until he moves to his permanent home along with the Barnes Tribute. You will be able to see him when visiting the Lorain International and Port Fest or taking one of the water taxis for lunch.

And a visit to the Mayors office , 7th Floor City Hall will find the Lorain Eagle
