Having consolidated the surrounding ridges...', 1915.

Having consolidated the surrounding ridges against attack, the Anzacs land supplies near Gaba Tepe’, 1915. On 25 April 1915 soldiers of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) landed at Gaba Tepe on the Gallipoli peninsula in Turkey. The small cove in which they landed soon became known as Anzac Cove. This photograph shows supplies and ammunition stockpiled on the beach. Gallipoli was the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the war. From a collection of 96 stereoscopic photographs entitled ‘The Great War’. Stereographs consist of two identical photographs paired in such a way that when seen through a special viewing instrument, a stereoscope, they appear as a three-dimensional images. By 1899 the photographs were mounted on thick card that was given a slight curvature to increase the illusion of depth.
