Additional Notes 'A modern plinth sheeted with granite has replaced the original sandstone plinth. The Sir William Glasgow Memorial Statue faces southwest on a raised triangular grassed mound, which is one of three grassed islands forming the reserve bounded by Albert, Roma and Turbot Streets. The bronze statue is 2.5 metres high and is set on a tapered plinth, which is clad with panels of grey granite and bears inscriptions detailing Glasgow's career and service record.'https://heritage-register.ehp.qld.gov.au/placeDetail.html?siteId=19561
