Forgotten Landmark–Site of General Wolfe Statue, Quebec City, Quebec, Canada

Site of General Wolfe Statue (Western corner of Cote du Palais and Rue St. Jean)

On the front of the large house which once stood here, stood a wooden statue of General Wolfe, which was originally put there in 1771 and which finally found a resting place there after many peregrinations in the early part of the present century. Carried off by English “middies” and men-of-war’s-men “out of a lark” to the West Indies and other places, it eventually found its way back to Quebec.
