Birmingham - see the great views from the Vulcan the Iron Man
Standing 56 foot high, towering over the city of Birmingham, is the unusual statue of Vulcan, the Roman God’s Blacksmith. It was built for the 1904 St Louis World Fair, and at the time was the largest bronze statue in the world. Nowadays it now stands on a 12 story sandstone tower, and a trip to the top of the tower offers great views over the area. There is also an adjacent museum, that explains and shows, the history behind its manufacture.
