7 Cenotaph and Carillon in Victoria, Canada

Within eyesight of the Parliament Buildings are two Victoria monuments. In the foreground is the British Columbia Legislature Cenotaph. The war memorial was erected in 1925 to honor Canadians who lost their lives during wartime. The bronze soldier on top of the granite base was sculpted by Vernon and Sidney March. The cenotaph is the scene of Remembrance Day ceremonies every November 11. On the left is the Netherlands Centennial Carillon. The Dutch gifted the 90 foot tower in appreciation for Canada’s help with their liberation during WWII. The carillon contains 62 bells.
