Donning a fedora, overalls, and heavy gloves, this statue in downtown Boulder City was created by Steven Liguria, a local artist, to immortalize one of the unsung workers who helped to build the Hoover Dam. Alabam carries a broom like a combat rifle with a bandolier of toilet paper rolls strapped across his chest. His job was to keep clean the outhouses of the construction site and although you may think Alabam's role wasn't all that important, ponder this - 7,000 workers would eat a large breakfast and pack a large lunch. Workers were then stuck at the construction site all day long where the outhouses got used 7,000 times over! In hindsight, Alabam's role was just as important as the role of the rolls he carried!
