More Statuary Victoria ...

By popular demand, here are a few more sightings of the queen from around the blogosphere.

The lovely photo shown here is by David Hill (you can view his amazing Flickr portfolio here). This marble statue, which faces east toward the Round Pond at Kensington Palace, was sculpted by Louise, the queen's sixth (and some say most talented) child.

In 1857, Queen Victoria chose Ottawa as the new capital of the United Province of Canada. Here she visits the Library of Parliament to see how things are going.
