@eleanoreunson found out today that there are only two statues of women in the whole of Edinburgh!! #localhistorian
Posted @withrepost • @eleanoreunson In Edinburgh there is a grand total of 2 statues of women. 2! I have lived so near to Queen Victoria that this fact totally passed me by until a recent campaign highlighted that there are more animal statues than female statues in this amazing city…the animals are all male too so we can’t even claim one of them!
Queen Victoria has been in Leith since 1907 and was moved in 1985 and 2003 to accommodate new traffic and for cleaning. She proudly wore a Hibs football scarf in 2016 when they finally won the Scottish Cup Final…I assume she would have been amused @64millionartists #64millionartists #thejanuarychallenge #queenvictoria #2statues #whereiselsieingles
