Queen Victoria Queen Anne

Shot with Olympus E520
This statue of a younger Queen Victoria Queen Anne that stands outside St Pauls Cathedral and is unusual for the gilded orb, sceptre and crown. Which may be why this statue is fenced off.

It is a bad (!!) copy of the original by Frances Bird, erected in 1712 to commemorate the completion of the Cathedral. The original can still be seen in St Leonard's-on-sea.


I'm off walking in Shropshire over the weekend - back soon.
