Queen Victoria

In line with Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee today, here’s a bronze statue of her Great-grandmother, Queen Victoria, looking very regal (but stern) standing aloft in Dalton Square in Lancaster, UK.

(By the way, the green coating is ‘bronze disease’ a process that is caused by water interacting with the bronze, pretty much like the interaction of metal and rust.)
