Anzac Pool of Reflection

Australia / The Pacific

The Anzac Pool of Reflection is a shallow pool next to the Anzax Memorial in Hyde Park.  It was built to commemorate the men and women who served in World War I.  The vision of Bruce Dellit (1898-1942) for the memorial included a still shallow pool bounded by poplars to the north of the building (included for their significant symbolic association with the battles in France and Belgium) and a cascading fountain to the south.  However, funding for the construction was adversely affected by the Great Depression in the early 1930s.  In 1934 the building was completed through public subscription, and the Pool of Reflection was finished with the assistance of Unemployment Relief Funds.
