Photographic tribute to Anzac Day now on display at Cobb+Co Museum
21 April 2015
A new display at Cobb+Co Museum features photographs from three decades of Anzac Day marches in Toowoomba and Brisbane.
Cobb+Co Museum Director Deborah Bailey said the photos, taken by members of the Toowoomba Photographic Society, are a moving and timely tribute.
“Many of the photographs capture the intimate moments between veterans and their families, providing a personal insight into this deeply significant day”, Deborah said.
President of the Toowoomba Photographic Society, John Stewart said members of the Society have been taking photos of Anzac Day marches for over 30 years.
“It was just something we starting doing, but now, in this historic year, we felt it was important to share some of these images”, John said.
“Sadly, many of the old warriors depicted in these photos are no longer with us, but we hope that, through these photos, the sacrifices they made will never be forgotten.”
The photographic tribute to Anzac Day by the Toowoomba Photographic Society is on display at Cobb+Co Museum until Sunday 17 May 2015.
