These windows at 105 Queens Parade Clifton Hill are currently windows at the premises of Clifton Hill and District Chiropractic Clinic. However, for many years 105 Queens Parade Clifton Hill was the residence and rooms of eminent Melbourne surgeon Dr J. Forbes Mackenzie who also practiced as a consulting surgeon at nearby St Vincent’s Hospital. Max Meldrum’s portrait of Dr Forbes Mackenzie won the 1940 Archibald Prize for portraiture.
