What You Won't Do For Love, Pt. 1

Most guys will come up to a woman and ask, "Is this seat taken?" But Lachlan Macquarie, on the other hand,  always made sure that his wife had the best one in the house:

The inscription:
Be it thus recorded that the road round the inside of the Government Domain called Mrs Macquaries Road so named by the Governor on account of her having originally planned it measuring 3 miles and 377 yards was finally completed on the 13th day of June 1816.
And the view, as it is now: 

Mrs. Macquarie's Chair is now part of the Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney. Pictures taken by yours truly.
