WINDOWS INTO WARTIME

Windows into Wartime will be on display in Riverside Theatres foyer for a limited time to compliment the season of A Town Named War Boy.

This must-see exhibition features images produced by NSW Government photographers during and immediately after the Great War that document and reveals how society came together to support Australia’s military campaign overseas. Photographers captured a society making advancements in public health and volunteerism, the organising of recruitment campaigns and patriotic fundraising events, to the Red Cross movement and soldier support schemes. These photographs have been digitised and reproduced from original glass plate negatives especially for the exhibition.

Don’t miss this glimpse into the NSW home front during and immediately after the First World War.
