Alabama from the Vulcan Statue

1 of 52

Birmingham, Alabama, is watched over by the Roman God of fire and blacksmithing—Vulcan. As a nod to the city’s history as a major producer of the nation’s steel and iron, the Vulcan statue (the largest cast-iron statue in the world) was erected in 1904 for the World's Fair and moved to Birmingham, where he presided over the 1906 Alabama State Fair. Now the 56-foot-tall Vulcan looms over the city. From the observation deck at the base, people can enjoy an impressive view more than 120 feet above the city.
