A Statue Misconstrued 2

an Editorial Corruption

 

Monument to Workers Injured and Killed on the Job






Erratum
The Image, A Statue Misconstrued, is here captioned as
the Monument to Workers Injured and Killed on the Job  The image in fact depicts Queen Victoria's Statue, Gore Park. The Monument to Workers Injured and Killed on the Job, executed in bronze by sculptor Paul Cvetich, is at the corner of Main and Bay streets, and was installed April of 1990.

The work has become a focal point for organized labour in the city.

The Queen Victoria statue, unveiled in 1908, was not the work of Paul Cvetich.

†Local newspapers reported the sculptor’s name as Philippe Hebert. The sculptor was christened Louis-Philippe Hébert, but usually went by the name Philippe Hébert. The Hamilton sculpture of Queen Victoria is signed “Philippe Hébert.” [Colin S. MacDonald, A Dictionary of Canadian Artists, Vol. 2, 1989, p. 411.]

The caption should read:
This is not Paul Cvetich.
