When I visited Australia some years back, I went to dinner in the King's Cross section of Sydney, which is a small Bohemian community. I don't know which king the name celebrates, and I don't recall seeing a statue, but Sydney was a rough frontier town when George IV reigned, so perhaps it was dedicated to him. Best wishes for the new year.


How brave the Victorians were! To put up a 70ft statue and then tear it down 10 years later because it wasn't popular! I can think of some modern opportunities for that treatment.

Marc: according to Wikithingummy the Sydney one (which seems to be fairly insalubrious, like the London one) was originally Queen's Cross (after VR, of course) and later got updated.
