A recently unearthed collection of rare WWI photographs has shed new light on Brunswick’s wartime history. The 750 glass plate and glass negative collection features several telling images of the era including rare photographs of local soldiers on the eve of their departure and on their return to the suburb.
One such image, which is known to historians, shows a room full of Brunswick soldiers from the 1st Australian Imperial Expeditionary Force at a farewell dinner on September 9, 1914 just before being shipped off to war in Europe.
