Bridge of Remembrance in Christchurch, New Zealand

The Bridge of Remembrance was built in 1924 as a tribute to soldiers who died during World War I. Its design by William Gummer resembles a Roman triumphal arch. The lions above the smaller portals were sculpted by Frederick Gurnsey. The war memorial is at the east end of Cashel Street Bridge. This span over the Avon River was completed in 1873. Bridge of Remembrance suffered earthquake damage in 2011. After extensive restoration, it reopened in 2016.
