According to Brett, Pomeroy pays tribute to "local baron-made-good" (55) with a monument that represents him "enshrined in a miniature version of City Hall, his guardian figures represent[ing] his posts at either end of the Empire": the turbaned and sabred Indian sits on a cannon. while the Canadian voyageur sits on a dead moose. Brett feels that the magnificently self-confident statue of the Marquis "typifies the imperial pretensions of Edwardian Belfast" (commentary for Plate 72, opposite p. 63).
