Title

Loyola High School Interior and Exterior War Memorials

Description

Inscription on exterior War Memorial:

THE ROAD OF REMEMBRANCE

In 1922, hundreds of Maple trees were planted along Sherbrooke Street in Notre-Dame-de Grace to commemorate the young men who died in the “War to end all Wars.” The stretch of Sherbrooke Street from WestHill Ave. to West Broadway became known as the “Road of Remembrance.”

The Maples, which still grow in front of the Loyola Campus, were dedicated to the thirty-seven Loyola men, who gave their lives for their country in the First World War.

“May God’s perpetual light shine upon them.”
