WITH CAMERA AT ANZAC BEACH, 1915

New on the National Archives of Australia website:

"This album contains 41 views of Anzac Beach and the surrounding hills and gullies. Taken in 1915, the photographs it contains capture Gallipoli through the eyes of the digger.

There are images of sandbags and barbed wire, hospital tents and supply depots, captured Turkish soldiers, diggers in trenches, Lord Kitchener with his generals, crosses in the cemetery and imposing landmarks such as 'The Sphinx'. Together these photographs make the album a powerful record of the Australian soldier at Gallipoli."
