Statue Of Queen Victoria, Woodhouse Lane, Leeds :: Shared Description

Commissioned in 1901 to commemorate Queen Victoria it was unveiled by Lord Mayor, Edwin Woodhouse, on November 27, 1905. A memorial committee had been formed in 1901 after the death of the queen, and a subscription fund raised nearly £8,000. The seated bronze figure of the queen was presented on a tall Portland stone plinth with allegorical figures of Peace and Industry. Celebrating British imperial expansion in the Victorian era, a continuous frieze winds around the base with the inscription “INDIA,” “AUSTRALIA,” “CANADA,” and “AFRICA”. The statue was moved in 1937 to a Hyde Park in another part of the city.
