First World War Billboard at State Library of Queensland

State Library of Queensland’s large billboard running along the Stanley Place side of the building features a panorama of medical and nursing staff at Yungaba, Kangaroo Point Military Hospital (6th Australian General Hospital), taken in 1917.

A major medical facility in Queensland during the First World War, the hospital began operating on 19 July 1915 and was closed by the end of June 1919 when staff and most patients were relocated to the Military Hospital at Enoggera.
