He just happened to be there for the inauguration of the road; that is the short answer for yesterday’s question.
Believe or not, the monument plaque says that this monument was erected in the memory of Walter Williams who happens to be present on the date of inauguration for the the road. I guess that back in 1925, Guatemala was still a jungle and foreign visitors were scarce, so they needed to erect a monument to celebrate such an important event.
Now, does anybody out there really know why Walter Williams got a piece road in La Antigua Guatemala named after him? I would like to know.
