Exhibition of World War 2 posters

By Lithgow City Council
Posted: 23 Mar 2022
Lithgow library will host an exhibition of World War II posters during April.

The historic posters belong to Michael Bowden. They will be on display from 28 March show a love story. Michael is a collector of memorabilia such as these six framed posters which relate to songs that were popular during WW2.

The historic posters depict a love story. Michael is hoping that the exhibition will convey that, ‘love is worth fighting for’ and suggests you might like to download some WW2 songs for a ‘bit of reminiscing’ while enjoying the exhibition.

Some of the songs worth listening to are those sung by some of the popular singers of the time such as Vera Lynn and Betty Jane Rhodes ; You started something (1941), There’s a boy coming home on leave (1942), The fleets in (1941), Silver wings in the moonlight (1941), and This is worth fighting for (1942).

This exhibition is free and will be held in conjunction with the Lithgow Library’s regular ANZAC Day displays.  For more information contact the library on 6352 9100.
