The Great War of 1914-1918 affected all avenues of suburban life. Its impact was profound and didn’t end in November 1918. At the end of the four-year centenary commemorations of the First World War, Dr Helen Doyle will reflect on the local impact of the war in the City of Stonnington (formerly the Cities of Malvern and Prahran).

Dr Helen Doyle is an historian and heritage consultant who specialises in the histories of places and landscapes, and is interested in the ways that local communities value their history and heritage. Helen works as a heritage consultant at GML Heritage Victoria. Her publication, Suburbs at War: The cities of Malvern and Prahran during the Great War (City of Stonnington, 2015) won the Centenary of World War I Award at the Victorian Community History Awards.

The City of Stonnington will be taking photographs and/or filming at events. Your image may be reproduced by the City of Stonnington in publications and/or promotional materials (including online publications), on its website and/or on social media.
