A central element of community life in Marrickville, New South Wales, for many years, Gilbert Doble's memorial statue of the Greek goddess Nike on the municipal war memorial was generally known to locals as Winged victory. Sir Walter Davidson, Governor of New South Wales, unveiled the statue and memorial before a crowd of 15,000 in May 1919, placing it among the first monuments to the Great War to be completed. Many hundreds of others across the nation would follow in the months and years that came after.
