If the square represents the playwright William Shakespeare, then it may also be connected with the squares that acknowledge Romeo [D5] and Juliet [C17].
Alternatively, the square may represent a living person. For example, in 1892 George Shakespeare married Annie Frances Evans at her home in Williamstown (Argus, 23 Jan 1892, p1., Marriage Notices). There was also a Major Shakespeare in charge of the Volunteer Military Force - Engineer Corps during the 1890s. The Sands & Macdougall Directory for 1895 records three households with the name Shakespeare: Edward C, a saddler living in Collingwood; Mrs C, also of Collingwood, who sold fancy goods, and Edward E, a butcher of North Fitzroy.
