Recreating the iconic pyramid picture
The Western Australian Genealogical Society (WAGS) intends to photograph the relatives of Western Australia's 11th Battalion who were iconically captured in the pyramid photograph taken in Egypt on the Great Pyramid of Giza. The photograph (see below) was captured on 10 January 1915 and so it is fitting, that 100 years later, hundreds of relatives of these men will come together in Kings Park for a photograph of their own.
