    VISIT TO FORT WALLACE  View Printable Version  
    Sunday, December 01 2019 @ 12:19 AM
    Contributed by: bobcook

    An important first step in NIHA's new project - FORTRESS NEWCASTLE, was to visit another of the unused military sites from WW11.
    Fort Wallace will eventually become open to the public and will make an exciting stopover on the 'Fortress Newcastle Trail'.
    We will soon start featuring some of the amazing stories of how the 'Newcastle Industrial Hub', protected by 'Fortress Newcastle', was such a critical part of the war effort to save Australia.

    Murray McKean had the privilege of photographing the demolition of the steelworks. He took the opportunity to take many excellent 'artistic' photos of the demolition. An exhibition of his best photos opened at the Newcastle University Art Gallery on 24 September. Many NIHA members were in attendance for this impressive event.
