Not quite a memorial, agreed, but we, as Londoners, couldn't leave it out. It looks just as charming here as in Kensington Gardens. Sir James Barrie’s play, "Peter Pan", was first produced on 27 December 1904 and became an instant success. The first Peter Pan, Nina Boucicault, (always a woman) modelled for the statue in 1911. Barrie personally commissioned the sculpture and arranged for its erection in Kensington Gardens. Frampton’s memorial in St Paul’s, London, has a figure holding a model of this statue.
