Have been walking past St Paul’s regularly for the last 2 years and almost everyday I want to take new pictures. Sorry if this has recently been a little repetitive, but I have been enjoying learning my new camera and newer lens and so every day something new seems to catch my eye. Last night it was the statue at the bottom of the main steps of the cathedral.
I’ve since read that Queen Anne was the ruling monarch when St Paul’s was built in 1710. The original statue was replaced by this replica in 1886. The figures around the base represent England, Ireland, France, and North America – all of which were ruled by Queen Anne. Such a beautiful statue and I always think it’s amazing that things were built to be so permanent in those days, this is 125 years old.
