Mr J E Boehm's Golden Jubilee Statue of Queen Victoria in the
presence of Her Majesty at Windsor, June 22nd 1887"
The statue was unveiled
by HRH Prince Christian. K.G. High Steward of Windsor, and represents
the Queen in regal attire, wearing the ribbon of the Garter and
holding the orb and sceptre. It is cast in bronze an stands some
15 feet high on a pedestal of Aberdeen granite.
At the time of the unveiling Joseph Edgar Boehm was not knighted and so his title was 'Mister'.
It is likely that he was knighted soon after the erection and
unveiling of Windsor's statue, in recognition of his achievements
both here and elsewhere in the UK during Victoria's reign.
The above illustration appeared in the
Illustrated London News of June 28th 1887.
