A Lion with the Blues – Botanical Garden, Montréal, Québec

A Lion with the Blues – Botanical Garden, Montréal, Québec
The Lion de la Feuillée is a monument located inside the Montreal Botanical Garden. The huge lion that lies at the entrance to the rose garden was donated in 1992 by the city of Lyon, France on the occasion of the 350th anniversary of the founding of Montreal. The original Feuillée bridge over the Saône River was opened to the public on September 28, 1831 in the heart of the old city of Lyon. The Feuillée Lion is one of four castings of the original work. During the reconstruction of the bridge in 1910, the four lions were relocated. In 1992, one of them found its way to Montreal.
