Formatted Abstract/Summary
The Crane Driver, carved by John Muller pre-1953. Possibly Mr AH Robinson (grotesque G3), located on the Forgan Smith Building in the Great Court at the University of Queensland. AH Robinson was the crane driver during the construction of the University at St Lucia and he often joked with John Muller about their love of beer, therefore he was depicted with a beer mug in his hand.
