Located on the steps at the end of King Charles Street in Whitehall, this somewhat controversial statue of Robert Clive, known to many as Clive of India, stands outside what was the India Office (and is now the Foreign and Commonwealth Office). The statue was erected in 1912, apparently it was suggested by Lord Curzon, a former viceroy to India.
One thought on “LondonLife – Clive of India in silhouette…”
Was admiring it just the other day. Most of the time, a bastard to photograph, as your headline suggests!
