Perth, Queens Gardens – Peter Pan

We just happened to be walking through Queens Gardens in East Perth on the weekend, and stopped to photograph its famous literary sculpture.

The Peter Pan bronze sculpture in the centre of the garden was installed in 1927, and is a replica of Sir George Frampton’s original Peter Pan sculpture that is in Kensington Gardens, London.

Apparently, J. M. Barrie, the author of Peter Pan, lived near Kensington Gardens when he wrote his first Peter Pan story in 1902. Barrie commissioned the sculpture which was erected in Kensington Gardens in 1912.
