The Queen Square is a broad blank which connects Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank Building with Canotaph Road. There are many seats and sprays, so lots of Philippians’ maids gather there on weekends to find jobs, and Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank Building is another gathering place for them.
The statues at the plaza were destroyed by Japanese army during the Second World War, and only Thomas Jackson’s Statue was returned to the original place. He was a manager of Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank. The vaulted colonial building in the middle of the square was the Supreme Court, but it is the general legislative council now. Standing among the high architectures, it has its own sentiment.
