Updated Photo of Original 1926 Dedication

Through the kind work of staff at Jemena, the successor to the manufacturing arm of AGL, a better quality photo has been obtained of the original unveiling of the War Memorial in 1926.

The Governor of New South Wales, Admiral Sir Dudley Rawson Stratford de Chair, K.C.B., M.V.D. unveiled the Tablet on 26 August 1926.

The original photo on the website was a scanned copy from the Sydney Morning Herald. The new photo is from a scan of the original photo held by Jemena. It is hoped that an even better copy of this photo and others of AGL works can be provided in the future.

The link to the photo is here in the Memorial Background tab and is shown below:

The photo gives a clearer view of the people, the front gates, and what is now the current Administration building.
