ABSTRACT
The author argues against proposed plans to remove several 19th-century sculptures and monuments located in George Square in Glasgow, Scotland. It is suggested that the relocation of the statues is being pursued hurriedly and with practically no public consultation. Monuments mentioned include the sculpture of Sir John Moore by the artist John Flaxman and the statue of James Watt by the sculptor Sir Francis Chantrey.
