King George V Memorial
|Collections||Operative Stonemasons' Society of Australia|
|Date created:||c. 1942|
Designed by sculptor George Rayner Hoff and architect Harry Foskett, the bulk of the memorial was built in 1941. Both men died before its completion and John E. Moorfield was chosen to finish the structure which was not finished until 1943 due to delays caused by the second world war. The King George V memorial was erected by the people of Australia to commemorate the reign of King George V from May 1910 to January 1936.
