A group of women in a crowd are a study in expressions at the Anzac Buffet in Hyde Park where relations waited to welcome home their loved ones, including some wounded, as the cars (not seen) drew up and deposited their loads of Returned Soldiers. The woman holding the Box Brownie camera is Miss Myra Harvey and beside her, the older woman with glasses, is Mrs Elizabeth McCallum. As men started returning from the front, the Anzac Buffet became the place where men were welcomed home.
