Photographer's Note

ENGLISH: This is the Australian War Memorial in our capital city, Canberra. It was built in 1941, designed by Emil Sodersten and John Crust in the late 1920s. Along the walls are the names of all the Australian soldiers who gave their lives for their country throughout the many wars over the years. It's a very sobering thought that one day, there will not be enough walls for those names.

PS: I've just looked at my upload in horror to find out that I uploaded the un-adjusted image. I had corrected the distortion in the one I should have uploaded. Apologies.

PPS: Just for Ike, I have included the colour version in my Workshop.

ITALIANO: Si tratta del Australian War Memorial al nostro capitale, Canberra. L'edifice fu construito in 1941, da Emil Sodersten e John Crust. Su ogni lato e muro sono i nomi dei caduti. E' una cosa triste quando penso che un giorno, non sara' abbastanza spazia per quelli nomi.
