Wonderful elevation of the Repatriation Commission's proposed Artificial Limb Factory for South Melbourne. I've come across a few interesting references in various papers and books about Australia's artificial limb development and production.
I had a fantastic week in Melbourne and was particularly pleased to see Love and Sorrow at the Melbourne Museum. They have a fabulous website set up for the exhibition which I've added to the reading section of his site. Of particular interest to me was the Life after War section. The subject is vast and must have been a huge challenge for the curatorial team. The exhibition runs to August 2016 so there is plenty of time to get there. I highly recommend a visit - confronting but important.
