This photo was taken in 2013 when the National Battlefields Commission was celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Joan of Arc Garden. The interpretation panel in the foreground features a photo of the statue shortly after it was installed in the park.

Quebec City Women’s Club member Barbara Bignell happened to mention during a recent conversation that her father Jim O’Halloran was instrumental in seeing that the large bronze statue of Joan of Arc was installed where it is today, in the beautiful garden on the Plains of Abraham.
