HRM Monument #9: Sir Winston Churchill

This ten foot tall bronze statue honouring former Second World War British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill, is located on the front lawn of the Spring Garden Road Public Library and weighs 1.5 tons.

It was sculpted by Oscar Nemon who attempted to recreate a famous image of Churchill walking in Halifax in 1943, when he came to inspect the city during WWII. The statue was officially unveiled on January 20, 1980.
