Ben Franklin

The button of Ben Franklin

You might be interested: the big white button sculpture? The assumption of the sculptor, legend has it, is that Ben Franklin, being as well as an inventor, and early American genius, was also a gourmand and hedonist in general, might very well have popped the last button off of his waistcoat -- and if you looked carefully enough at the large statue of Old Ben across from the button sculpture, you would see that -- indeed -- there is one button missing.
