On the northeast corner of University Avenue and College Street, you will find the Ontario Fire Fighter Memorial. The memorial is a tribute to the 344 fallen fire fighters who have sacrificed their lives while protecting lives, property and the environment throughout Ontario

The memorial was dedicated on June 5, 2005. The base of the memorial is a red Maltese Cross, an international symbol for firefighting. The bronze sculpture shows a fire fighter rescuing a child from danger. The black granite monolith behind them represents a building. The name, rank, and date of death of Ontario’s 344 fallen fire fighters appear on the surrounding granite walls.

My images are in black and white as I was shooting that day with the Fujifilm film simulation Classic Monochrome.
