Summary:
After Al Tomaini's death in 1962, his wife, Jeanie, placed a 35 inch boot outside of their home, as a memorial. This picture is of the unrestored boot. When Jeanie died in 1999, the property was sold to Mosaic Company and shortly after that, the boot went missing. To honor the family Mosaic, with the help of Gibsonton residents, created a park on the site of Giant's Fish Camp, and today a full size replica of the boot is on site to memorialize Al.
