The city of Birmingham is more than just a southern city known for the civil rights movement, its place in the American steel industry and the University of Alabama. It’s also the birthplace of one of the sweetest love stories ever told, the story of Electra and Vulcan.
Electra or the Divinity of Light, is a gold statue, a goddess of power if you will, that stands atop the Alabama Power building and Vulcan is the nude statue that represents the city of Birmingham, as its roots are greatly steeped in the steel industry, therefore there’s really no better representation of this than the the god of fire, metalworking, forging etc. If you get the chance to read the account of their love tale a Birmingham Post journalist wrote in 1926, then you’ll be able to fully grasp how deeply they cared for one another, and being statues without the ability to move from their subsequent positions, how their love went unconsummated for a very long time. That is until supposedly, they each discovered a way to slip down from their lofty perches and steal away to meet up in several secret rendezvous throughout the course of the overnight hours only to return to their respective posts before morning. The only evidence of their trysts are the considerable potholes their heavy footsteps left upon the expanses between them in the roadway.
