David Mitchell A Forfar Man
By Pamela Vestey
David Mitchell is best remembered as the father of Dame Nellie Melba but in this book his great-granddaughter Pamela Vestey focuses on the man. A stonemason, he arrived in Australia virtually penniless but went on to build many of Melbourne’s landmark buildings and created his own empire for his family. This is the first book written about this man who was an innovative person and a leader in Melbourne’s business community. In many ways, Melba was very like her father.
