Brisbane, QLD. c. 1916. Two soldiers stand next to a recruiting booth covered in war time posters encouraging young men to enlist. The booth is at the south bank end of the Victoria Bridge over the Brisbane River. One sign states "God Bless Daddy. 45000 Australian Fathers are Fighting. Will You Help?". Another depicts a scene of a Belgian town in captivity and asks "Will You Stand For This?". (Donor R. Pike)
