Lemnos 1915 - Then & Now - New Book Available

Cheryl Ward is the creator of some amazing "then and now" images of Lemnos - inserting some of the iconic photographs from 1915 by AW Savage and Herschel Harris into modern photographs taken by herself.
She has now produced a book featuring some of these montages or creations. 
The book is called "Lemnos 1915 - Then & Now."
The Book is 48 pages, costs $90.99 and can be purchased via the following website by clicking here.

The promotion for the book states:
"Cheryl Ward’s play 'Through These Lines' tells the moving story of Australia’s First World War army nurses. As part of the research for the play, Cheryl traveled to the Greek island of Lemnos to walk in the nurses’ footsteps. Using period photographs and diaries crammed full of invaluable eyewitness accounts, Cheryl was able to turn back the clock 100 years. These impressive photographs present a new perspective on the Anzac story."
