Summary
  • "This book relates the untold story of how Australia’s first diplomatic mission was conceived, designed and built. Commenced in 1913, Australia House was opened in 1918 while the Great War still raged. Being London’s first purpose-built Dominion embassy building, it defined London as an Imperial capital. It is a story of ambitions and achievements – global, imperial, local and personal."
