Memorial


I couldn't find any information on the internet about this memorial, but I think it has something to do with the war. If anyone knows something I don't, please share! You really get a great view of the Toronto skyline from the island.

I don't know what memorial it is, but I assume it is WW1 because I googled the names Ryerson and Ryrie and learned that both were killed in that "great war." Also checked Toronto Great War Memorial and other memorials and came up with nothing. I tried!!

One place I've never been, so I've not seen the view from that perspective. It is beautiful.

@Kate - thanks for trying! I think it did have something to do with WWI. I should have taken a picture of the overall memorial to remember what it was about.

Also, Ryerson is a big name in Toronto. There's a private university named for the family.

Good guess. Most memorials do. We just don't learn from our war mistakes.

I love the details.

I wonder why there's nothing there to explain what it is. Hmmm. I suppose at one time everyone KNEW so there was no need to explain.

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
