King George II

Posted by

In the Royal Square, St Helier, Jersey, stands the gilded statue of King George II. It was erected in 1751, in what had been for many years the Market Square. The Square was renamed Royal Square in honour of the King (and the statue) and in gratitude for his contribution towards building the harbour.

King is a perfect choice for K day and a good shot of the statue.

Oh, how I'd love to be sitting in that cafe right now. A bit more sun would make it more inviting, but your photo just brings you right there!

I know so little about George II - now George III is another story...

If the statue is in gold, maybe I'll spend a visit and don't be surprised if it's gone the next day !

Great photo! Kind of ironic that behind it, there's a yuppie cafe, don't you think? Commentary on our times. Very nice layout, and perfect for ABC, so thanks. Amy Barlow Liberatore
