Video from the dedication of “The Family” statue in Conshohocken

On May 31, 1999, a statue named “The Family” was dedicated at the Conshohocken Veterans Memorial (which had been dedicated in 1928) at West 2nd Avenue and Fayette Street in Conshohocken. The video includes portions of the dedication and sculptor Joseph Pavone shares how he created the statue.

During the dedication, Gerald McTamney shared that the statue was unusual for a veterans memorial as it didn’t show a soldier in the field, but one returning home to his family. McTamney was a Marine and a longtime member of Conshohocken’s Borough Council.

The video was posted by Crow’s Nest VHS Tapes. The person shared on the account that he uploads random VHS tapes that he comes across. This one was found among his grandmother’s tapes.
