Redfern War Memorial

Description: 

Two white marble figures (Australian soldier and a young woman) dress a granite monument which is faced with a dedicatory plaque and a list of local men who gave their lives.

The memorial also featured a tall column up until 1975 when a storm caused considerable damage, resulting in the subsequent repositioning of principal elements - SEE 'Additional Images with accompanying information:' link, below.
