Yes, ten out of ten, clever readers, it is indeed Queen Victoria.
She stands in the middle of a roundabout in the West End of Aberdeen, at a busy road junction known as Queen's Cross.
It is an odd feature of life here in Aberdeen, that all our roundabouts in the city are sponsored by oil and gas companies.
I'm am wondering whether Queen Victoria would have approved of having to share her space with adverts for First Oil plc…..
PS from Gail: Bertie and I are off down to England for the next ten days, visiting Human Granny and meeting up friends. Blogging activities may be reduced.
