This statue is near the north approach to the pictured Fremont Bridge. Each figure in the statue has its own strange tale to tell.
The first actual artsy sculpture in Fremont, predating the rocket ship and the Troll for sure. On the site of the old trolley stop on N 34th Street at Fremont Avenue, in memory of all the people who waited here for their Seattle transportation links way back when.
While looking for the Fremont Troll, take a look at this sculpture. Often decorated by anyone having a party.

“In 1991 a live morning newscast reported the dismantling of the circa 1950 cold war rocket fuselage that was on display at an Army Surplus in Belltown. After hearing the news Fremont immediately went to acquire the Rocket. Instead of heading to the scrap yard, the Rocket was taken to Fremont and into urban mythology. The 53-foot rocket was constructed from military surplus, using the tail boom of a Fairchild C-119 ‘Flying Boxcar’ transport aircraft dressed up with rocket-like fins. The rocket was originally plagued with engineering difficulties, leaving its constructors with the unfortunate problem of ‘not being able to get it up.’ Until the summer of 1993 when a team of specialists were called in to engineer the electronic features, structural details and design the new fins and nose cone. Neon laser pods have been installed on each fin and on the nose and in launch mode steam vapor emanates from the Rocket base. Thus, the rocket became erected on top of a building on the corner of North 36th Street and Evanston Ave North bearing the Fremont crest and motto, “De Libertas Quirkas”–which means “Freedom to be Peculiar.””

“I don't know who put the pic of the Ballard Locks here. Old Vladimir is much more impressive. You can meet up with him just a few blocks west of the Fremont Troll.”

“Lower Fremont: 21+, super cool Speakeasy bar hidden behind Roxy's Diner (best breakfast place). You will find chandeliers, frescoes, mirrors, statuettes, and so forth, with a bar stocked with house-infused liquor serving old-timey cocktails. The menu includes small plates, sliders, oyster shooters. My favorite: order the roasted broccoli, it's amazing!”
