Gelatin silver print photograph, 135 x 85 mm, printed on card stock, verso with studio imprint of J. Ward Symons, Hopkins St., Footscray; the print has some light edge wear and some tiny traces of silverfishing, and the back has some handling marks.

An extremely poignant image of an Australian family about to be separated – perhaps forever – by the “war to end all wars”.
