31 Glasgow City Chambers and Cenotaph in Glasgow, Scotland

The Glasgow City Chambers was inaugurated by Queen Victoria in 1888. Inside the pediment is a relief of the queen honoring her Golden Jubilee. Above it and beneath the flagpole are statues representing Honor and Riches with an image of Truth in the middle. James Alexander Ewing’s sculpture is often called Glasgow’s Statue of Liberty. This view of the Beaux Arts building by architect William Young is from George Square. The white monument with a golden cross in the foreground is a cenotaph designed by J. J. Burnet and erected in 1924. It honors the 18,000 Glasgow soldiers who fell during World War I.
