War Memorial Building: Part II


This is the second statue that frames the grand entrance columns to the War Memorial Building. This one just has WWI soldiers. I really wish I could find some explanation for these two pieces of work. They are nicely done though.

It's an impressive memorial. We don't think often enought of the past so this sculpture reminds us of what has gone before. Glad when cities memorialize the young men who died in war.

It's nice to see these memorials in your city. My first husband served 3 1/2 years in WWII. He was one of the lucky ones who came back and was not injured.

A wonderful work.

It's a very expressive memorial...that was such a terrible war with the gassings used to exact more terror and suffering.

So far as I know my grandfathers were not involved, but they would have been the right age...

A very good work, I hope you will be able to find something more about this memorial.

I was going to ask if your mall was a Simon mall? If so, that would explain the similarities...
