Hood Collection part II : [City streets and scenes: including streetscapes, labour processions, military parades and memorials, statues and Cenotaph] ca. 1905-ca. 1955

By Sam Hood
The 1937 Anzac Day parade, with 22000 servicemen, was one of the largest held in Sydney before World War 2. Allied ex-servicemen, including British and Dominion troops, French, Italian, Greek and Russian returned soldiers marched behind the AIF contingent. Italian ex-servicemen gave a fascist salute at the cenotaph in Martin Place. Although their gesture would be anathema today, a photograph of the salute was published in the Daily Telegraph at the time, without comment.
