Union Française

The bronze statue of Marianne to the left of the front door of this building at 429 Viger Street E. is the work of sculptor Paul Romain Chevré, who survived the sinking. He also carved the statue of Prime Minister Sir Wilfrid Laurier that is in the lobby of the Château Laurier in Ottawa.
