Soldiers and citizens at Waikerie

Soldiers and citizens at Waikerie

Large group of soldiers in uniform, lined up along the verandah of a building, perhaps large residence, in Waikerie. A researcher has suggested that the building is the Austral Gardens Hall and outdoor picture theatre at Waikerie (now the White Street car park). The researcher has provided the following information: Built in an old quarry, it was the main place to meet etc in Waikerie until the Institute opened in the 1920s. The men pictured here are returned Servicemen, and they may be gathered here after the dedication stone for the new Institute and Memorial Hall was unveiled by General Birdwood on a visit to the town. Within 25 years more than half of these men had died, usually of war-related problems or what we now know as PTSD related incidents. The Austral Garden Hall was made into a private house and demolished in the 1960s.
