Statue Square and Cenotaph
Originally known as Royal Square, a statue of Queen Victoria was erected here in 1896 to commemorate her Golden Jubilee. This space was the first public venue built after the reclamation in the late 19th century, and is now a public park. Much of the park's significant statuary was removed by Japanese occupation forces during World War Two and destroyed or lost; the statue of the Queen was recovered and returned to Hong Kong in a different location in 1957. The statue now remaining in the square is that of Sir Thomas Jackson, 1st Baronet, the chief manager of the Hong Kong Banking and Shanghai limited financial agency in its early years. Beginning in the 1980s and onward, thousands of Filipina domestic workers congregate in and around Statue Square each Sunday, their day off.
