Collection of the Australian War Memorial

Those bits of work that keep the collector from the door often throw up gorgeous things that keep you plugging along waiting for the next jewel to show itself.

This tiny little print went under my nose a while back and I keep going back to peek at it.

 c.1943

Description: Elevated view of rows of accomodation huts at Stalag VIIa prisoner of war (POW) camp, Moosburg Germany. Australian and Allied POW’s and German camp guards stroll about the camp which at its height held nearly 80,000 prisoners. A guard’s checkpoint between two compounds is set up midway along the road at left.
