Area Statues

  • Hong Kong, Hong Kong
  • Statue Square, 1A-3 Des Voeux Road Central,
    Central, Hong Kong
     
  • The name of the area is directly related to the statues of the British royal family, when placed on it. They stood there until the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong during World War II. Now you can only see the monument of Sir Thomas Jackson, banker HSBC.
    It was built in the late XIX century. At first it was only on the bronze statue of Queen Victoria, built to commemorate its anniversary in 1887, as evidenced by the name of the area in Chinese.

    The remaining statues were installed later. For example, the monuments to Prince Albert and Edward VII were added in 1902, a statue of Sir Thomas Jackson - in 1906. All of them have been moved to Japan to be melted. After the war, the statue of Sir Thomas Jackson and Queen Victoria were brought back to Hong Kong. The latter is in Victoria Park.

    From the 1980s to gather in the square Statue Square on Sunday has become a tradition for thousands of Filipino domestic workers. The same thing is happening in Victoria Park.
