MENTONE Girls’ Secondary College and the Mordialloc and District Historical Society have collaborated to showcase 25 photographs from World War I. These photos display the remarkable images of soldier Carl Janssen, taken when the Anzacs were training in Egypt.
Until now, the photographs have only ever been stored in the Victorian State Library. Now they will be on display, organised by the students at Mentone Girls’ Secondary College at the museum. This exhibition marks the first time these photographs have been publicly exhibited.
Along with the photos, a number of Year 9 students at MGSC have researched a specific Anzac solider from the Kingston area and created a series of video presentations, exhibiting the stories of these local heroes.
This exhibition is not one to miss. To see these incredible historical photographs and excellent visual presentations made by the young historians at MGSC, head down to The Laura and Charles Ferguson Museum at Old Bakery Lane, Mentone (just behind La Porchetta, beside the Coles carpark).
