St Paul's Cathedral
The figures around the base of the statue of Queen Anne (yes indeed, Anne, not Victoria, sorry all!) are intended to represent England, France, Ireland and North America.

Brandy Nun, Brandy Nun, your're left in the lurch
Your face to the gin shop, your back to the church.
I'm off walking in Shropshire over the weekend - back soon.
