Mural, 'I remember' by Joanne Saad

City of Canada Bay Mayor, Angelo Tsirekas with artist Joanne Saad at the launch of her mural, 'I remember' in Fred Kelly Place, Great North Road, Five Dock.

 

Fred Kelly Place is named after Frederick John Kelly (1897-1998) who was the last surviving New South Wales veteran of the Gallipoli campaign of World War I. He also served at the Somme, Bullecourt and Frommelles and was awarded the Croix de Guerre.

 

A photograph of Fred Kelly on the day of his marriage to Nina Carless can be seen in the mural, to the left of the Mayor. Fred worked for 38 years with Nestlé, ultimately as company accountant. Abbotsford House which was at one time the company offices of Nestlé can also be seen in the background.
