Queen Vic and the library tower

The statue of Queen Victoria was erected in front of the Public Library in the city centre in 1903 in commemoration of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee (1897).  The library building itself was erected in 1902.


  1. Happy New Year and hope the blog continues to entertain and educate! I see that Queen Elizabeth is having her damond jubilee this year now.

  2. The formal, regal pose and the elegant facade in the background gives this photo a classic style and dignity! Beautiful!
