CANADIAN MONUMENT SPOON EXHIBIT


I do not have as many Canadian spoons as I do US spoons, so this exhibit is much smaller.

Views of the Champlain monument in Quebec. Note the faulty manufacture of the right spoon where the handle solder destroys the top part of the statue
I hadn't even noticed this flaw until I created a big picture.
The Samuel de Champlain monument is one of the most imposing Quebec monuments dedicated to the man who explored the region. There are also other monuments to Champlain in Canada

The indian handle on this spoon is very well done (wish I had a 'six pack' like this guy)
The South Africa monument in Montreal is dedicated to the Canadians who fought alongside the British in the Boer War.
Sculpted by George William Hill, it sits on the northern edge of Square Dorchester in Montreal
