Postcard of Hove’s Queen Victoria statue.
The statue was erected to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee in 1897. However, construction of the statue only began in March 1899 when the Borough Surveyor laid the concrete foundations.
When the statue was finally unveiled on 9 February 1901 it was with little fanfare. Queen Victoria had died just a few weeks before on 22 January.
