Fremont has adopted this phallic and zany-looking rocket sticking out of shoe shop as its community totem. Constructed in the 1950s for use in the Cold War, the rocket was plagued with difficulties and never actually went anywhere, leaving the engineering team with the unfortunate problem of ‘not being able to get it up.’ Before coming to Fremont, it was affixed to an army surplus store in Belltown. When the store went out of business, the Fremont Business Association snapped it up in 1994.
