Streetview has a nice shot from 2018 of the turtle and his ladybug friend. Seems they came by on a street-sweeping day when the cars were not blocking our view.

Cliff is a beloved resident of Allston. He created and cares for this quirky but loveable Allston landmark. Be like Cliff!

Is Cliff from the same mold that made the burning bronze turtle at the Myrtle Street Playground in Beacon Hill?
