Random monuments { no.2 } – Sailor’s Memorial

Sailor's Memorial - work of the author, April 2009

At the easternmost edge of the Harbourfront stands this rather striking monument to the local sailors who gave their lives in two world wars. Below it lie two eight-inch guns, both trained on the base of the Jacques Cartier Bridge. Apparently, at certain times of the year – my guess business hours during the summer, you can climb to the lookout up top. Never met anyone who’s ever been inside though.
