A monument commemorates Queen Victoria.   The sculpture was gifted to the city of Perth by Mr Allen Stoneham, a local and London mining entrepreneur in 1902.

It was a replica of another made for the Examination Hall of the Royal College of Surgeons, with the Queen’s robes given to the sculptor to copy the lace into the Carrara marble. The veil was also created in likeness of the Queen’s wedding veil.
