Victoria Memorial Park

Happy long weekend everyone! July is fading fast, and the dog days of August will be here before you know it…

Today’s photo is one I’ve had for at least a year. I’d been meaning to get out to the cemetery and grab a modern equivalent, but it just never happened…

From the back of this photo dated March 23, 1932:

    White marble memorial erected in Victoria Memorial Park, Windsor, in memory of Queen Victoria. Park is a cemetery promoted by private interests, which built the memorial with promotional funds.

As you can see, the memorial is still there, and still standing.

Enjoy the long weekend, due to the holiday, no post Monday. See you back here Wednesday August 3rd.
