Back in December, 2008, I took an in-depth look at the Memorial Fountain that is located in Jackson Park.
Included in the coverage was this ad:
IN THE MORNING
Unveiling of Memorial Fountain erected in
the memory of the Essex Soldiers who fell in
Military Parade through principal streets.
The unveiling was captured in a postcard, one that doesn’t show up too often, but is a neat snapshot of an important moment in our city’s past.
Neat details in the photo… Imagine climbing to the top of a telephone pole for a better view today? Banners strung across Pitt Street…
Looks like some bleachers were set up for spectators, maybe even dignitaries? Interesting to see the collection of people on the roof of Peoples’ Furniture.
