These photographs date from about 1906. The statue of Queen Victoria, presented by Alderman Sir John Blaker is with us to this day, but what of the others? These were intended for the mansion in Park Lane, London of Mr Barnato, the South African Millionaire, but when this was bought by Sir Edward Sassoon, he removed the statues and presented them to Brighton. They soon fell into decay but a pillar resembling the pedestal of one of them was recently standing on a grass approach to Moulsecoomb Wild Park and could be seen from the Lewes Road.
