Druitt Street, Friday November 10th 2006.

The Queen Victoria Building, QVB, is a Victorian era (1896) shopping mall built in the Byzantine style and is celebrating its 20th anniversary since it was fully restored to its former glory. The statue of Queen Victoria has an interesting history. It is the work of Irish sculptor John Hughes. This statue stood outside the Irish Houses of Parliament in Dublin until 1947 and was given to the people of Sydney by the Irish Government in 1987. You can view a panorama of the street here.
