 Old Fashioned Mike Mulligan Steam Shovel, Sterling, MA

Driving down the road in Massachusetts prior to entering the sleepy little town of Sterling I was amazed to see a steam shovel on the side of the road in front of Pandolf and Perkins Gravel and Stone, stood a replica of what I thought was Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel
A favorite children's book by Virginia Lee Burton that I had read to me as a child and I also read to my children. The book was first published in 1939.You remember Mike Mulligan, a steam shovel operator, and his steam shovel Mary Anne.
