(contact QldPics about this picture)
Office workers are having lunch on the grass at Queen's Park. Palm trees, trimmed lawns, and flower beds set the scene for a relaxing siesta. The old Executive Building stands on the left with a statue of Queen Victoria, first unveiled by Lord Chelmsford in 1906, in front of it. Field guns were located in the park either side of the Queen Victoria memorial, commemorating Queensland's participation in the South African War of 1899-1902. These guns have subsequently been removed.
