The statue of former Louisville Mayor Charles P. Farnsley by Dawn D. Yates on West Main Street must be counted among the city’s most popular. Having worked on this block for three years, there was seldom a day when someone wasn’t being photographed deep in conversation with the bronze statue. But it wasn’t until a visit home last year that I really began to appreciate the work of art.
Now that’s what we’re talking about. So who knows the story behind this little guy (or gal) who has been keeping Louisville weird since the statue was dedicated on June 3, 1999?
