Completed in 1904 and erected in Humboldt Park in 1911, sculptor Charles J. Mulligan's statue of a young girl meeting a returning miner stands as a memorial to the 259 victims of the 1909 Cherry Mine Disaster in northern Illinois. "The Miner's Homecoming," also known as "The Miner and his Child" or "Image of Home," is located at the entrance to Humboldt Park at the West Division Street and North California Avenue in the West Town community area of Chicago, Illinois.
