A shady walk, mansions... and the lawn jockey in Clinton IA 1905.

A jockey hitching post up front of the mansion... it was the goal of many in America in 1900 but realized by few. But with steam engines developed in the 1830's to power ships, trains, and factories- followed by oil power in the 1860's, steel manufacturing perfected in the 1870's, followed by the harnessing of electricity and invention of the telephone in the 1880's, and with automobiles and air travel in developmental stage, the new millennium promised to produce "a million new millionaires", a million new mansions with a million new lawn jockeys... and a future of endless possibilities. All of these advances, the most dramatic in the history of civilization, were mirrored in the advance of hitching posts from a wood or stone monolith in the 1830's to the iron jockey hitching post in the 1870's- but only in America... hitching posts as an art form in Europe and elsewhere never advanced past horse head finials. If you happened to be tramping through the woods near Putnam, Connecticut in September of 1901, you would have stumbled across 2 young lads dreaming this exact American dream of endless possibilities in real time- playing "house" in their ramshackle tent with the younger one(with no shoes) pretending to be the "millionaire in his mansion" while his older friend "Putnam Boy"(with missing shirt buttons) taking the outside role of "lawn jockey"(holding a fishing net as a "ring").

It's a powerful image taken at the peak of America's "lawn jockey" era, not only because it reflects on a humorous situation and the character of the individuals portrayed, but also because "Putnam Boy's" jockey gag illustrates the integration of the jockey hitching post in society as a whole.

The dream fulfilled

So where did Putnam Boy end up, coming from these humble beginnings? Did his dream of "endless possibilities" die in a World War 1 trench? Of course in just a few years all new "millionaires" would be driving cars instead of buggies... and there would be no jockeys up front of their mansions to tie up ponies- so surely there would be no jockeys for sale when Putnam Boy became an adult except for antique ones...

But wait, if Putnam Boy was still alive in 1946(at about age 55), although it's unlikely he became a millionaire... as fate would have it he finally COULD fulfill his dream... with a new streamlined jock on his lawn!

In any event, because Putnam Boy's "jockey gag" of 1901 was captured on a glass plate negative and that image on that plate survived a 100-year journey through the space/time continuum to your eyes today, Putnam Boy's dream of a world of endless possibilities lives on... because the jockey lives on.

Like our Original White-face Jocks, Streamlined Jocks are virtually maintenance-free and age gracefully. Just like other yard artwork, just hose him down when you're watering the flowers or set the spinkler to hit him every now and then and he'll look great for years.

The Streamlined White-face Lawn Jock is fully-painted with red, white, almond, and black oil-based enamels- the same kind of paint used on farm machinery and little red wagons that are used a lot and face the elements. Paint is chip, fade, and UV resistant and will last for many years. The statue itself is made of non-rusting Aluminum so it too will last for generations.

A ring is included for the Streamlined White-face Jock's hand, but these Jocks also work well with our optional oil and solar lanterns(lantern sold separately- CLICK HERE for more information).
