Historical information

Photos of a procession of widows and legatees to the Shrine in 1992. These photos were in a scrapbook of photos from 1992.
The pilgrimage was led down St. Kilda Road by the Hawthorn City Pipe Band (it may have started at St Paul Cathedral as there is a church service prior to the pilgrimage). A junior legatee is the flag bearer of the yellow Legacy flag.
Sir Weary Dunlop can be seen in the march. President Swan and the President of the Widows' Club, Inez Bruce, are seen carrying wreaths to be laid.
This is an annual event for Legacy widows, sometimes referred to as Widows' Sunday. It is usually at the start of Legacy Week, which is usually the first week in September. The church used for the service varies.

Inscriptions & markings

The paper label says "To mark the start of 'Legacy Week' members of the Legacy family gathered for the annual church service and pilgrimage to the Shrine. This year the Hawthorn City Pipe Band led members of the Legacy Family down St. Kilda Road. The haunting sound of the pipes were a stirring prelude to the pilgrimage into the inner shrine."
