[between ca. 1865-1905].
Research by our Flickr Commons users established that this statue of King William III had been moved to this location (from a nearby bridge) in the early 19th century. As with other memorials to King William III, it suffered several defacements, before being entirely removed before the 1930s. The general consensus is that this image dates to before 1905, when the statue was seemingly beheaded. The pedestal remains, and is a landmark in the surrounding parkland and "Boyle Pleasure Grounds".
