Winston and the Birds

Poor Winston! Here he strolls in front of the Halifax Public Library while birds perch on his head. No wonder he looks so cranky.

Oscar Nemon sculpted this bronze statue honouring Sir Winston Churchill. The statue was unveiled on January 20, 1980 and is based on a photo of Churchill taken while he was walking in Halifax.

The front of the library on Spring Garden Road is a really happening place. At least it was the couple of times I walked past it. Chip trucks line the street on this block and there are benches and a long, stone fence just perfect for people perching all in front of the library along with a lot of green space. There always seemed to be lots of people hanging out there. I love to see a lot of people around a library. It makes me happy.
