The “Worker” Sculpture – Lowell National Historical Park (Lowell, Massachusetts)

This life-sized bronze statue of an Irish canal digger is a memorial to the many immigrant laborers who hand dug the 6 miles of canals that helped lead the way to the industrial mega city that was Lowell in the nineteenth century. The statue is part of the Lowell National Historical Park which also includes restored factories, canals, trains and museums. The artists responsible for the statue were Ivan and Elliot Schwartz.
