Week days
Monday – Wednesday, 9am to 5pm
Thursday – 9am to 8pm
Friday – 9am to 5pm

Weekends
Saturday & Sunday – 10am to 5pm

Lemnos 1915: Then & Now combines images of contemporary Lemnos with eyewitness photographs taken in 1915 to reveal a unique perspective.

Lemnos was pivotal in Australia’s First World War campaign. The island acted as a port on the way to and from Gallipoli, providing a hospital for the wounded and a rest from the terrors of war.

In 2011 Cheryl Ward and Bernard de Broglio visited the Greek island. Using sketch maps from 1915 and contemporary satellite imagery, they were able to match photographs in the State Library’s First World War collection to their exact location.

The importance of the Australian nurses’ experience on Lemnos cannot be understated.

To honour that experience a special 70 minute adapation of Through These Lines has been commissioned by Lemnos1915 and the Lemnian community and presented by the Greek Festival of Sydney.

This one-off performance will document Sister Florence Whiting’s journey from Australia, to the dramatic events off Gallipoli, followed by her life-altering experiences on the island of Lemnos.

Florence, unknowingly, still has 3 years of service to go but it is on the island of Lemnos, where she is challenged both professionally and personally, that she finds herself .
