Colour in Darkness

These images are a selection from the free exhibition, Colour in Darkness: Images from the First World War, at the State Library of NSW from 25 June to 21 August 2016

In the early 1920s, an extraordinary collection of hand-coloured photographs toured Australia in an exhibition titled The Pictorial Panorama of the Great War.

The captions from the original exhibition have been reproduced here. They illustrate the language and attitudes that were common during and after the First World War.
