Noon Hour in a Munitions Plant, Frances Loring

Noon Hour in a Munitions Plant is a bronze relief by sculptor Frances Loring. Part of the Beaverbrook Collection of War Art, it now graces the lobby of the Canadian War Museum. Loring and Florence Wyle were commissioned in 1918 to do a series of sculptures of “girl war workers” as part of the project to document Canada’s participation in the war.
