This is a picture of “The Hiker” statue at Roosevelt Square, Main & Huron Streets, downtown Buffalo, New York.
“The Hiker” statue was created by New York City sculptor Allen G. Newman (1875-1940); he copyrighted it in 1904. For a time it served as the official monument of the United Spanish War Veterans organization. The name “hiker” was the term infantry men used to address one another casually in the 19th century; “Hello, Hiker!” was a common greeting. Buffalo’s statue was dedicated on May 29, 1920.

Thank you for sharing the beauty of Buffalo with us
I want to thank you taking this journey with me.

That’s it. In my tongue/language, Hiker it’s Caminante, as in “the one who walks”. It was a common therm to refer to foreigners…a common ancient therm.
It’s nice and such a honor to know that they still remember us a bit in there, even if it’s with a statue lol!
See you michael
