Produced to aid YMCA military work and the returned nurses’ fund in 1916, it contains the writings, drawings and 7 colour plates from Westralian authors and artists. Originally funded by interesting advertising from the leading manufacturers and retailers of the day, this brilliant collection shows the intellectual and philosophical attitudes of a century ago. Such a true expression of the nation would not be possible today from our termite ridden ‘nation.’
