Barbara Ross collection no. 2
The Barbara Ross Collection also includes fourteen pieces of imported souvenir ware that depict a diverse range of Australian war memorials. These items were produced between the early 1930s and mid 1950s by English, Japanese, and Czechoslovakian firms, and were sold at Australian souvenir stores. War memorials were a community statement of bereavement and pride, and by the 1940s they were still Austrlaia's newest and most prolific form of monument. War memorials were therefor depicted widely on souvenir ware which emphasises the diversity and abundance of these commemorative sites.Date made
