William Bede Dalley Monument by artist James White | Sydney Public Art

James White

A monument dedicated to William Bede Dalley, an Australian politician and barrister. 

Like many first generation Australian's Dalley was a child born of two convict parents. He took advantage of the education system and rather than leaving school and working in a drapery as he intended he was persuaded by a friend to continue study and later became one of Australia's first born politicians.

This is one of many sculptures found within Hyde Park including
