Queen Victoria Memorial - Charity. Day 4 of my B/W photographs

This is one side of the Queen Victoria memorial which faces Buckingham Palace.  It is a memorial which we are familiar with but never look close enough to understand what the memorial is about.  This side of the memorial is Charity, representing the otherside of Queen Victoria, not only she was a queen but a mother also.  One of the meanings of the word Charity in old English is 'love of humankind' in the Christian context. The figure of the queen is on the otherside.  On the left and right side of the mother and her children are angels, one representing Truth, the other Justice.
