At the museum until December 12...

The century-old images below are part of a short but thoroughly moving video featuring photographs from the Great War.   Viewers have to be cautioned that while some of the images are charming (like the air force fox mascot below) others are disturbing and deeply troubling.   Overall, however, the production is inspired, inclusive and compelling.   The video is part of a larger, overall presentation at the museum on World War 1.   Visitors have until Friday, December 12 to see this great effort by the museum.   

The video was produced by a team led by museum curator Kathleen Fry and included Tony Rolph, Gavin Watt and Murdene Pozdrowski.   The touching music accompanying the video is the  "The Lark Ascending" by Ralph Vaughan Williams.

Please comment if you wish.
