Artworks for an ANZAC Day from home
As we all observe ANZAC Day from home this year, we wanted to spotlight a few works that celebrate the ANZAC spirit.
This includes a rare set of lithographs by Horace Moore-Jones that capture ANZAC Cove as it was in 1915 – The historic landing place of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, on April 25th, 1915.

Canary Girls was a nickname given to the women who volunteered in UK munitions factories during the First World War. Repeated exposure to toxic TNT caused their skin to turn a yellow colour reminiscent of a Canary Bird’s plumage, and so the nickname emerged.
The Canary Girls took on serious health risks to load TNT into shells for the war effort, and the poor ventilation in UK munitions factories exacerbated the risks of working with toxic trinitrotoluene. Along with yellowing skin many volunteers reported illness, and by the end of the war over 100 munitions factory volunteers had died from illnesses caused by the toxic chemicals.
