This silver gelatin photograph shows Arthur and Valerie Lederer in front of the Grand Hotel Europe in Salzburg, Austria. They are elegantly dressed in formal attire for an event held during the Salzburg festival. The Lederer family fled Vienna prior to the outbreak of World War II and came to Australia as displaced migrants. As a result of the war, allied bombing destroyed over 7,600 buildings in Salzburg including this hotel. This photograph was kept as a reminder of the family’s former life in Europe.
