Photographer's Note

This is the back (west) side of a huge beautiful monument in the Mount Royal Park in Montreal, QC. It was erected in 1919 to honour Sir George-Étienne Cartier (1814 - 1873), one the fathers of the Canadian Confederation, his statue stands on front of the monument. The five ladies here, and four others on the front, represent the provinces who joined the Confederation in 1867, the formal ending of Canada's colonial past. The figures on the sides represent education, another area where Cartier had a major influence. The monument is topped by a winged Goddess of Liberty. The sculptor, George William Hill (1861 – 1934) made many important monuments, but this is probably his best.
Pictures of the front and south side view of the monument are shown in the Workshop.
