Another University Ave Monument
Earlier in the week I showed you the Boer War Monument and its fountain which can be found on University Ave. It is not the only monument in the boulevard running down the centre of University Ave. The one I'm showing today is a bronze sculpture of Adam Beck who was the founder of Ontario Hydro who developed Ontario's hydroelectric infrastructure. The piece was designed by artist Emanuel Hahn and was unveiled in 1934. The words Queenston-Chippawa on the base of the sculpture refer to the location of the Adam Beck generating station on the Niagara River.
