Always like to see old statues of historic figures and this one in Victoria Square of Queen Victoria is a beauty.
What a marvellous Lady she was who ruled over the British Empire of that era . Well worth looking around the area.

A huge statue of Queen Victoria mounted on large square stone base. There are six bronze panels on the base depicting early colonial occupation. Two bronze plaques are also inset, one as a war memorial to the 1901 African War and the other naming the statue

The statue of Queen V is located on Queen Victoria Square. Its a grand statue of her majesty representing the golden Jubilee celebration of the founding of the Cantebury settlement. A lovely piece of history in the park, well worth seeing when in Christchurch.

We are lovers of all things statues/monuments etc as they tell you so much about a city and its people. Located within the square of the same name stands a proud statue of Vicki who reigned in the 1800’s, over all her land Nen Zed being one of them. Worth a passing look whilst enjoying her square.

One of the interesting things to see at Victoria Square is the bronze statue of Queen Victoria, which is now situated near the corner of Armagh and Colombo Streets.

This is a works of British sculptor Francis J. Williamson and was unveiled in 1903 to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of the founding of the Canterbury settlement. The monument also serves as a memorial for those from the Canterbury region who were killed during the South African "Boer" War (1900-1902).

Here you see a regal depiction Queen Victoria. She stands and peers forward, dressed in royal attire and crowned, she holds a sceptre in her right hand. The monument pedestal includes bronze reliefs depicting industry and occupational scenes from the colonial period.

Note: This is one of several interesting monuments at Victoria Square. It is equally worth taking a few minutes to see and enjoy the Captain James Cook Statue, H. L. Bowker Fountain, and the Maori
Poupou monument.
