Description

Accounts from the Front, 1917

Join us on Remembrance Day to launch the "Accounts from the Front" exhibition and hear Curator, Grace Blake speak about this fascinating research project and display.

The Albert Park and South Melbourne Rowing Clubs saw many local residents enlist during World War One. Their letters home were published in wartime newspapers, and their names were inscribed on the South Melbourne Town Hall honour board. This exhibition commemorates these locals and displays some of their letters home.
