Dorchester Illustration of the Day no. 1787 World War I Monument

Dorchester Illustration of the Day no. 1787


Sometimes when we drive around Dorchester we concentrate so much on the traffic that we don’t see the monuments and the artwork displayed on our streets.  Today we have the World War I monument at Kane Square, the intersection of Bowdoin and Hancock Streets.

Dedicated by Francis G. Kane Post 60, American Legion, in memory of the heroes of Dorchester who made the supreme sacrifice in the World War. Erected by the people of Dorchester.
