Western Front Photograph Exhibit Part 1

 

 

100 years ago, in August 1914, the German Army opened what became the Western Front by first invading Luxembourg and Belgium, then gaining control of important industrial and mining regions in Northern France. The Great War was fought underground, at Sea, and in the Air but most of the deaths occurred on the land in trenches.

 

This exhibit is a result of acquiring a collection of 122 original "Official War Photos". The SHBBHS historical researchers have reproduced a selection of photos into large image formats and organized them by the battles where thousands of Canadians gave their lives as well as other themes.  In addition to a description of each image, informative background context with location maps will provide the visitor an introduction to the Great War.

 

Original WWI artifacts will also be on display.
