Peterborough and Lindsay Stories and Headlines (vacation edition): Peterborough YMCA Announces! Unconditional Surrender Statue, Bayfront Sarasota
Unconditional Surrender- On August 14/1945 the Japanese surrendered to end WWII. In time square in New York a celebration ensured and a famous photo was taken by Alfred Eisentaedt that captured the joy of the people upon the end of the war. That photo was “The kissing sailor”. A kiss between a Nurse and a Sailor. Funny enough the Nurse was not a nurse, she was a dental assistant.
American Sculptor J. Steward Johnson created this sculpture and gave it to various Sarasota Count Veterans Organizations. It is not proudly displayed at the waterfront in Sarasota Florida.
Weather-Reports have it you have snow back at home. I am going to rub it in a little. It is 28c and sunny here. I have a few more shots of Sarasota to share with you!
