Guard - Tragedy on the home front - Did you know that...

Military Guard Standing on the north pier of the Quebec Bridge, Quebec, Que., 6 July 1916
A lone sentinel stands guard on one of the massive masonry piers of the Quebec Bridge. This photo was taken by E.M. Finn an employee of the Dominion Bridge Company. Finn originally planned to take photographs from the ill-fated centre section of the bridge on the day of the collapse. His decision to change vantage points at the last minute saved his life.
