description

The Boy was first placed in the park next to old City Hall in 1901. He is believed to have been purchased, as an early effort at cultural improvement, by Alderman James. B. Badger during a trip to St. Louis. The Boy was eventually moved to San Jacinto Plaza. There he was guarded by the alligators J. Fisher Satterthwaite introduced in 1883.
