Keepsakes – Rediscovered Souvenirs of the Great War – Dunedin Public Library

After work on Monday, I decided that a quick visit to the Reed Gallery on the 3rd floor of the Public Library was in order, to visit their exhibit called Keepsakes – Rediscovered Souvenirs of the Great War. Until the end of September, they have this small exhibit of World War 1 items on display.

These are primarily paper based items – letters home, menus, Christmas and Mothers Day cards, documents, theatre programmes and campaign items.  For 100 years old, most of these items are in surprising excellent condition.

Many of these items were saved by library staff at the time or shortly after the war as items of future historical interest.

This is a free exhibit and it’s not large, you can easily see it all in around 20-30 minutes but worth a quick visit to check it out.

If you can’t make it to visit in person, the library has much, if not all of the exhibit available online here.
