Albany shop windows have been decorated by owners and schoolchildren to celebrate the 100 year Commemoration of the sailing of the 1st AIF and to honour the men and women who sailed from King George Sound. There displays are evocative with fabulous old artefacts like the sheet music of WW1 songs in the Classical Music shop and a vintage typewriter (which I’m coveting) in the Amcal chemist. Local students have also written stories and created artworks to display. For anyone who is here in town for the event an early ‘before breakfast’ stroll is a great time to see them.
With so many things happening over the next few days I’ll be doing regular posts, so please check in if you would like to see more of the commemorations.
