"Democrat Donkey" Downtown & Financial District Tip by Galahad
Downtown & Financial District, Boston: 28 reviews and 36 photos
Whilst I can read on the internet the history of the donkey as a symbol for the Democratic party none of my guidebooks tell me anything about this bronze statue just inside the entrance to the Old City Hall in School Street.
October 2005 I have recently had an e-mail to say that Old City Hall's management office have written that :-
" "The Donkey" was imported from Italy. We do not have record of who sculpted the statue."
It turns out the sculptor was Antonio Frilli.
Address: School Street
Directions: Part way down School Street between Kings Chapel and the Old Globe Bookstore
