Of Queen's Square, built in Queen Anne's time, but containing a statue of Queen Charlotte, and all the other squares of this district there is little of special interest to record directly connected with their gardens. They all have good trees, and are kept up much in the same style. [Queen Square is a comparatively small garden square in Bloomsbury, London, located approximately 200 metres (220 yards) east of Russell Square. The square was originally named Queen Anne's Square because a statue contained within it was misidentified as depicting Queen Anne. This statue is now believed to a portrayal of Queen Charlotte, wife of King George III. Wikipedia, 2007]
