The Mall, London Unveiled by King George V in 1911, the Queen Victoria Memorial stands in front of Buckingham Palace. The central monument is 25 metres high, made of Carrara marble and commemorates the death of Queen Victoria in 1901. Designed by Sir Thomas Brock and conceived by Sir Aston Webb, the memorial includes a figure of ‘Winged Victory’ which is balanced on an orb. ‘Victory’ is missing from the 1960s photograph and one can assume that it was away being maintained.
