Here is the Princes' Gates, designed by the architectural firm of Chapman & Oxley. The opening of the gates were in attendance by the Prince of Wales and his brother, Prince George in 1927!
|Goddess of Winged Victory|
A very familiar and distinct figurehead on top of the arch, is the "Goddess of Winged Victory" this was sculpted by Charles Mckechnie and underwent some major restoration in 1987.
The Princes' Gates (often mispronounced as Princess Gates - myself included) were designated as historically significant under the Ontario Heritage Act later in 1987. These gates marked the first place of our Heritage tour with much more interesting historical buildings, monuments, plaques and pavilions to follow.
