 “WWI Postcards Home from France.”

Our ANZACS missed their families and loved-ones, and they wanted to still feel a part of important events such as birthdays, anniversaries or other milestones. So they not only wrote letters but they also took the opportunity to send home postcards from wherever they could. Most of these cards feature embroidery, and such is the beauty of some of these postcards that they also doubled as mementos. The personal collection of one of Lithgow’s community members will be on display at the Lithgow Library Learning Centre, Main Street branch.

Saturday 11 April, 2015, to Tuesday 26 May, 2015.

During library opening hours.
