The Prince of Abingdon

The cover of the July 1st 1865 edition of The Illustrated London News has a picture of the Prince of Abingdon with great crowds around his feet, and clouds like mountain rising behind, emphasising the grandeur of this statue. You only need a few stone lions, and you have something to rival Nelson's column.

The Prince still looks very fine whether in silhouette, or

showing off his garters, high up there.
