|The picture below shows a larger front and back view of this Old Porcelain Father Flanagan's Boystown Nebraska Advertising Statue Figurine. The figurine is not dated. This may have been an award or a Boystown souvenir. It also may be an item from the famous 1938 movie with Spencer Tracy and Mickey Rooney. It is of the touching scene when the character Whitey Marsh is carrying little Pee Wee after he was hit by a car. It is marked on the front of the base and the bottom as follows:|
HE AIN'T HEAVY, FATHER HE'S M' BROTHER
The figure measures about 7'' tall. It appears to be in mint condition as pictured. Below here, for reference is some information on Boystown in Nebraska:
