Historic Sites of Manitoba: Boy With The Boot (Assiniboine Park, Winnipeg)

This whimsical statue was unveiled in front of the old City Hall on Main Street, on 16 July 1898, near the Volunteer Monument and the Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee Monument. He remained there until 1913 when he was moved to his present location in Assiniboine Park.
