Statue of Queen Victoria, Statue Square, Central District

中環皇后像廣場內的維多利亞女皇銅像


The Queen Victoria’s statue was cast in 1887 to celebrate her Golden Jubilee. The statue was unveiled in 1896 and was once moved to Japan during the Second World War. It is now relocated to the Victoria Park in Causeway Bay. Queen’s Building (the site of the present Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong) is seen on the right and Prince’s Building is on the left.

維多利亞女皇銅像是為慶祝其於1887年登基五十年而鑄造的。銅像於1896年揭幕,二次大戰期間曾被運往日本,後來遷至銅鑼灣維多利亞公園。照片右方是皇后行(現香港文華東方酒店位置),左方是太子行。
