Niagara-on-the-Lake Cenotaph

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 21 November 2017 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

An impressive memorial to be seen as you enter the downtown of Niagara-on-the-Lake. This wonderful clock tower is the centerpiece of the beautiful downtown area of Niagara-on-the-Lake. This fitting tribute to the men of this region is a pleasant reminder of how remembrance and community spirit can work together to create something special.

ON THE SEA, LAND AND IN THE AIR THEY LAID DOWN THEIR LIVES
FOR OUR FREEDOM. TO THE MEMORY AND HONOUR OF THE MEN OF NIAGARA ON THE LAKE WHO GAVE THEIR LIVES IN THE GREAT WAR 1914-1918 AND IN WORLD WAR II 1939-1945.

THIS CENOTAPH IS DEDICATED TO THE MEMORY OF CANADIANS WHO DIED IN THE SERVICE OF THEIR COUNTRY THEIR NAME LIVETH FOREVERMORE.

It is a very fitting memorial - thank you for including the history and the words. Your image would have stood alone - but the narrative makes it even more meaningful!
