Tin Men on Parade

These "Tin Men" were created by members of the Sheet Metal Workers International Association, local 17 in Boston (photograph by Jason Dowdle). They're part of an exhibit called "Keepers of Tradition: Art and Folk Heritage in Massachusetts" sponsored by the Massachusetts Cultural Council and now on display at the National Heritage Museum in Lexington, Massachusetts.

And here's a more journalistic photograph of sheet metal workers as "tin men" in Boston's Saint Patrick's Day parade, recruiting new members.
