In 1758, the equestrian statue of George II was unveiled in the centre of St. Stephen’s Green. This article discusses the aesthetics, modelling, and erection of the statue and its eventual destruction by a bomb in 1937. Included are a photograph and a drawing of the statue as well as plans of the layout of St. Stephen’s Green from the 1750s to the present day.
