Taken with my old C40, so gives an idea of the age of the photo.

Thanks David (I have a sister who lives in Melbourne).

Where is this statue, and who is the subject?

That's what I though too. The two figures being characters in his plays. However I don't think that the main bust is from the same era based upon hair style and clothing...nor could I find a Shakespeare statue that matches. Also given the background and provenance of the photo can we assume Scotland?

The centre bust and the decoration on the pillar makes me think William Shakespeare, but not sure about the other two figures?
Not Shakespeare

Not Scotland either.

Let's try - Europe.
Name the city and complex (only small part of it shown on the photo).

Edit: image removed due to my bad - the name was easy to spot on the photo.
See the new image two posts down. Question stays the same.

Good point Stan. Sorry for spoiling the game for you.
So: another image, from the same location.

Barry,
It's in Europe, some call it "Central Europe".
The main part of the complex in question (constructed of red bricks) are regenerated buildings of the cotton weaving plant and related utilities, originally established in the second part of 19th century.
