About This Group

This group is for showing off those HUGE icons called “Town Giants” that we see across our countries generally in small towns. In Canada we have the Pysanka in Vegreville, Alberta, the Big Nickel in Sudbury, Ontario and everything in between. We want to see those icons that your small town has as a town symbol too.
What would make this an even more awesome group would be for people to submit writings on the origin, history, memorable moments, etc. associated with these over-sized icons.
To clarify, it may be easier to consider what we do NOT want submitted:
– natural wonders
- just a town statue with no significance as a Town Giant (There is our sibling group Statues & Such for those)
- symbols such as Big Ben, Cathedral de Sevilla
- park or other statues where there are a number of like kind that are not significant as a Town Giant or
- buildings, bridges, etc..
There will be no limits as to how many photos you can submit in a day. We are stiffening the rules to hopefully include more of a description, such as the history of the giant and/or why the town embraces it as a symbol. Most of them include a sign beneath them to explain this. Just write that in your description. There are also other sites that one can use to find Town Giants that have information about it. Feel free to quote or provide a link.
