Created during the 19th century, the Square was named after Queen Victoria (1819-1901). The monument dedicated to the illustrious monarch was the work of British sculptor Marshall Wood and was unveiled in 1872. The entrance to the métro station in the Square bears an authentic Paris métro railing. The Art Nouveau casting was designed by Hector Guimard in 1900 and was offered to the City of Montréal by the City of Paris, on the occasion of the 1967 World Exhibition.
