USA & Canada: Children of a common mother
Cars line up to return to Canada at the Canada-US Peace Arch crossing between Blaine, Washington and Surrey, BC. The inscription on the US side reads Children of a common mother and on the Canadian side, Brethren dwelling together in unity.
Above the gates hinged on either side of the border is the inscription, May these gates never be closed. The Peace Arch stands 20.5 metres (67.2 ft) tall and was built by Sam Hill. It was dedicated in September 1921 and commemorates the signing of the Treaty of Ghent in 1814.
