David Oppenheimer Memorial by Charles Marega

These are photographs of the bust of David Oppenheimer, at the west entrance to Stanley Park near the Park Board offices. Oppenheimer was the second Mayor of Vancouver, from 1888 to 1891, and was the Mayor who worked to create Stanley Park. The sculpture was dedicated in thanks for that. Apparently this was Marega's first major commission after he arrived in Vancouver. The casting is dated 1911, and was made in England by Elkington Co. Ltd. A public collection was undertaken to pay for the sculpture. Photographs by Gary Sim.
