Additional Notes 'The King George V memorial statue was unveiled in Albert Square on 24 May 1938 following the King's death in 1936. The bronze equestrian statue and two bronze lions were the result of an Australia wide competition and were originally located on a sandstone plinth on an island in Albert Street. The statue of the King stood on a tall pillar facing the City Hall flanked by the lions on a lower base. The statue and the lions were relocated following the redevelopment of King George Square (Source: The Brisbane City Hall : a conservation plan for Brisbane City Council Heritage Unit BCC.'https://foursquare.com/v/king-george-v-memorial/4f0e139ee4b09cff007bc617
