photoblog image Edward VII Monument (Montreal)

Edward VII Monument (Montreal)

 

The square features a bronze monument of Britain’s King Edward VII, who ruled from 1901 to 1910. He visited Montreal in 1860, when he was still the Prince of Wales, to open the Victoria Bridge. The statue was designed by Louis-Philippe Hébert and was erected in 1914. The four allegorical figures at the base of the monument represent Peace, the Four Founding Nations, Abundance, and Liberty.

 

Four Nations, the western group, (shown here) represents Montreal’s four founding nationalities—French, Scots, Irish, and English—living together in harmony.

This is a great treatment Beverly. Edward VII was a much underrated monarch
Beverly Andrighetti: Thanks so much, Bill.

A fine piece of work. I wonder how Montreal's Scottish community view the forthcoming independence referendum Bev?
Beverly Andrighetti: The general election held on April 7, 2014 saw the defeat of the Parti Quebecois by the Quebec Liberal Party led by Phillippe Couillard. Talk of separation has died down, Chris.
This is a wonderful presentation Berverly! Great processing.
Beverly Andrighetti: Very much appreciated, Richard, thank you.
Lovely statue Beverly. I hope the descendants of those from the four founding nations still live in harmony together.
Beverly Andrighetti: We seem to be co-existing quite well, Brian. Thank you.
Uneasy harmony exists between the four at present but only with plenty of grumbling in the back ground
Beverly Andrighetti: The grumbling seems to have died down with the election of the Quebec Liberal Party in April, Martin.
