She certainly does look regal as befitting her title of Empress of India at that time. Thank you for sharing this interesting sculpture of history.:)

I saw a similar statue (I think) in front of Buckingham Palace in London.

Interesting to see another statue of Queen Victoria in another corner of the world. Did you see my dressed up Queen Vic statues in Sydney, a few weeks ago?

It is certainly a nice statue of her, Rajesh. Like the people of India, Canadians were also subjects of the Empress, and I'm always interested in reading about her. Thanks for sharing your photos.

She seems so entrenched in history - yet my grandma was born when Queen Victoria was alive.

That's a young queen victoria. the one in Auckalnd is much older.

My Indian friend told me that at that time, the French was also interested in India, Is it true?

Gattina said...

She always looks so "impmerial" lots of Statues of her are along the English coast.
Nice choice !

Rajesh said...

Ann: At that point India had lot of wealth. So, British, French, Portugese, Dutch, Persi, Greek ec., all were here then.
