Victory in Lawrenceville

Posted in Lawrenceville, Sculpture by Dr. Boli on December 6, 2012


Lawrenceville has two First World War memorials. The most famous is the Doughboy in Doughboy Square (which of course is a triangle) at the intersection of Penn Avenue and Butler Street. But this more modest memorial at the corner of Butler and 46th Street is a charming statue of Victory that would be the pride of any neighborhood that did not already possess a greater masterpiece.

    I recently discovered your blog after returning to Pittsburgh. I greatly appreciate the photos and tidbits of our local history.
