On the Home Front
Life at home in town and country NSW
How did World War I affect the people of New South Wales on the home front?
Sydney and country NSW faced massive upheavals in the face of war. While men and women went off to war, industries and jobs changed to meet the demands of a war time economy. Many people volunteered their time to help the war effort by fundraising and participating in events like Belgian Day. The face of Sydney changed with the building of Daceyville, the Garden Suburb and the development of baby health clinics. On the downside, there was an anti-German sentiment which prevailed amongst many people. Suburbs, towns and businesses changed their names and some people of German descent ended up in concentration camps.
