Based on the “Angel of Victory Statue” The bronze sculpture by Montreal artist Coeur de Lion MacCarthy (1881-1971).

Canadian Pacific Railway commissioned three identical statues to mark the more than 1,100 CPR employees who perished during World War I, the statues were placed near CPR landmarks. In Vancouver, the statue sits outside of Waterfront Station and was installed in 1921.  The two others are in Winnipeg (installed in 1922) and Montreal (installed in 1923). The dates of World War II were later added on plaques attached to each statues base.

While all three statues were cast identically, the Vancouver statue has its own mark of history. In the 1960s concerned citizens attempted to clean what they thought was dirt off the statue, as they felt its state was disrespectful. The “dirt” was actually a natural patina that occurs on bronze over time. The scratch marks from their cleaning tools can still be seen.

 

The Poppy represents the International ‘Flower of Remembrance’. Red poppies have been a symbol of remembrance and mourning since WWI. Inspired by Canadian Lt. Col John McCrae’s iconic poem “In Flanders Fields”
