Victoria at St Paul's Queen Anne statue, St Paul's

Plaque: Victoria at St Paul's


Here Queen Victoria returned thanks to almighty God for the sixtieth anniversary of her accession.
  June 22 AD 1897 

These letters are incised into the pavement area between the Queen Anne statue and the steps to St Pauls.

Queen Victoria visited St Paul’s for her Diamond Jubilee Thanksgiving Service which, since the Queen did not get out of her carriage (lazy old thing), was held on the steps between the doors and the statue.

Spitalfields Life have a c.1910 photo of this pavement inscription in its first incarnation.
