The Albert Memorial

If you scroll down to yesterday's posting you'll see a statue of a young Queen Victoria looking slightly to her left no doubt trying to glimpse her beloved Albert who stands fifty or so yards away and hidden by some shrubbery. The plaque is a fine example of Victorian oleaginous sycophancy. The statue was erected in 1868, seven years after the one to Queen Vic. You'd have thought they'd have put them closer together, poor old girl must have a crick in her neck after all these years.
