Queen Victoria stands at the Hyde Park end of Macquarie Street, towering over her domain. She was once the supreme ruler of the British Empire - a dominion over which the Sun famously never set. Her husband of 20 years, Albert, Prince Consort stands across the street gazing toward her. The statue was once the centre of Queens Square - a roundabout used by trams until 1961 and cars. You can still see the tram lines - or what's left of them - in the nearby tunnels leading into St James station.
