WWI Western Front Photograph Exhibit - Part 2

 


This exhibit stems from the acquisition of an album containing 122 "Official War Photos" of the Great War.

 

The first exhibit held in 2014 with 43 large format images focused on the early years of the war. This exhibit of 40 other large format images continues with a focus on the Hindenburg line and the decimation of many towns and villages along the Western Front, in Belgium and in France.

 

These photos will be accompanied by interesting artifacts:

 

Items related to Lieutenant Bert Sargent and Derek Grout's book "Thunder in the Skies" 

Selected great works from the sketch book of Private Adam Reid enlisted in the Cameron Highlanders in 1915.

Items related to William Hill of the Royal Canadian Medical Corps (RCMC)
