"So Full of Spectacle and Glory it Had to be Made in Technicolor!"
WWII Iconic Photograph
Turned Into an Iconic Sculpture
In 2015, the City of New Westminster unveiled a statue to commemorate the photo
in the exact location near the intersection of Eighth Street and Columbia Street where the photograph was taken.
The monument features three statues depicting the boy and his parents,
created by Canadian Edwin Dam de Nogales and wife, Veronica.
Wait for me, Daddy
"Wait for me, Daddy" is one of the most recognized photographs in the world and has become iconic for New Westminster.
I’m so impressed with all of the great information
you have on your sites supporting veterans.
