Event Description

The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month . . . The end of the Great War

The Great War to End All Wars

But one of the most striking monuments to World War I is Aero Memorial which resides outside of the Franklin Institute dedicated to the lost flyers of WWI.

Sadly, it was not until 1948 when it was finally installed, after the Second World War had concluded.

Another sculpture in town by Paul Manship is Duck Girl in Rittenhouse Square
