Based on recently discovered letters, this book tells the story of Paul Montford 1868-1938, who, as Basil Burdett described, 'left his mark so definitely on the civic landscape in Melbourne'. Montford designed the sculpture on the Shrine of Remembrance and the statues to Adam Lindsay Gordon in Spring Street, John Wesley in Lonsdale Street and Peter Pan at Melbourne Zoo. His engaging correspondence and previously unseen photographic archive reveal his professional and private concerns and are a fascinating reflection of the cultural life of Melbourne between the world wars.
