Every year, the veterans who march in the Remembrance Day parade in Owen Sound get to the cenotaph via the 8th Street bridge that spans the Sydenham River. In 2007, it was renamed in their honour to commemorate those from the city who fought in the world wars, the Korean War and the Afghanistan War, and those who served in peacekeeping duties around the world.

  1. I like these street lamps.

  2. That’s a handsome bridge, and I, too, really like those street lamps! I think a bridge makes a lovely memorial.

  3. Thanks for these beautiful information. And thanks for stopping by at my blog.


  4. Lovely shot and bridge. I like the story about the veterans.

  5. Beautiful angle and perspective in this shot!

  6. This is such a touching post. Being the daughter of a soldier of the Great War, I am well aware of the price the Canadians paid to foster freedom them and since. The graveyards of Belgium seem to be predominantly Canadian. I even have a screensaver for my PC at work showing scenes from the Great War made by a Canadian school teacher. I love your contribution. genie
