But what really struck me was the number of other memorials.
In a city that trades on its Eureka tradition (including a statue of Peter Lalor), there are statues of Queen Victoria and George V in the main street. But there's an Eight Hours Day memorial, and a plaque commemorating the formation of the AWU. Is it about balance or am I missing something?
Along with a number of other interesting memorials and statues (they're listed in Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sturt_Street_Gardens), there's a rotunda commemorating the musicians that went down with the Titanic.
