Historical information

In 1941, a play in South Yarra was a fundraising opportunity for the Mission during wartime.
Daryl Lindsay designed the programme of the evening. He was the Curator of the National Gallery of Victoria at the time.
The article describes the design: "Mr. Daryl Lindsay made a special drawing for the front of the programmes, picturing a member of a merchant vessel on the bridge of his ship in a gale."
He had previously illustrated the Mission's 1925 calendar.
