The National Archives are currently displaying a series of photos capturing the life of migrants to Australia post WWII. Whether for a long or short stay, many people spent their early days on Australian shores in hostels across a number of locations in the Country.
The exhibition contains vivid photographs of Australia’s migrant hostels with all the unfamiliarity they brought for their residents.
An overarching theme of friendship is captured in the photos of new life in Australia.
Where: National Archives of Australia, Queen Victoria Terrace, Parkes ACT When: 30 May – 30 Septmeber 2014
