"Public Art - King Edward VII in Phillips Square" Montreal Favorite Tip by yooperprof
Montreal General: 308 reviews and 317 photos
Favorite thing: Phillips Square faces the Hudson Bay Company Store in Central Montreal. (Lord Beaverbrook's Canada Cement Company is on the other side.) As it was a bastion of early 20th century Anglo economic power in Montreal, it's appropriate that a statue of King Edward VII presides over the square. "Edward VII" was commisioned, but it wasn't unveiled until 1914, after the king's death.
The sculptor who created the work, Louis-Phillipe Hebert, was widely employed in Ottawa on a number of similar figures.
