Queen Victoria

Queen Victoria still watches over parts of her former empire, with her "We are not amused look". This Sicilian marble statue of her, is situated at the entrance to the Main Library, on the North-Western corner of Market Square. It was erected and unveiled in 1903 two years after her death.

  1. I've seen very similar statues of her in Liverpool (Queen Victoria Monument) and in Southport. It's interesting to learn that such statues can be found thousands of miles away... Thanks for sharing.
