Two Statues Unveiled On One Day - Hong Kong Statue Square

With great pomp and circumstance, the unveiling of two statues took place on the 6th February 1907. Above is the King Edward VII statue donated by Sir Paul Chater. The other statue unveiled on the same day was that of The Prince of Wales (later King George V) donated by a friend and colleague of Sir Paul, Mr. Bell-Irving even though he had left the colony permanently five years earlier.
