AIDS Memorial, Barbara Hall Park

The Toronto AIDS Memorial in Barbara Hall Park (formerly Cawthra Square Park), one of the several across Canada, was completed in June 1993 in the middle of the escalating epidemic. Plaques of names of the dead are mounted on the pillars, arranged in a kind of semi-circle beyond these roses. Thankfully, in recent years with the progress of treatment the lists have grown ever shorter.
