Peter Pan turns 100

In 1912, Sir James Matthew Barrie - author of the Peter Pan books - hired sculptor Sir George Frampton to make a statue of the boy who never grew up. Barrie kept the project a secret, with only a select few, including Lewis Harcourt, the council’s commissioner of works, aware of the plan. After it was finished, Barrie arranged for it to be put in Kensington Gardens in the middle of the night because he wanted people to believe it was magic.

And on the morning of 1 May, 1912, there it was - and still is.
