Artist's Description

London, England.

Featured in Capital Cities of the World – 15 Sept 2010

The Crimean War Memorial is located on Waterloo Place, at the junction of Lower Regent Street and Pall Mall in London, about a quarter of the way from the Duke of York Column to Piccadilly Circus.

Originally it was unveiled in 1861, consisting of the statues of three Guards Men, with the female allegorical figure referred to as Honour. It was cast in bronze from the cannons captured at the siege of Sebastopol. The sculptor was John Bell.

In 1914 it was pulled down and moved to make room for the statues of Florence Nightingale and Sidney Herbert – Secretary at War at the War Office during the War. It is only then that the allegorical figure is referred to as Victory. (Info Source: Wikipedia).
