The Canowindra Avenue of Honour is located along both sides of Nangar Road, extending for about 580 metres from the edge of the township, heading east towards Eugowra.
The original Canadian Poplar (Populus x canadensis) trees, numbering about 100, were established early to mid 1930s, to commemorate WW1 service and sacrifice. Most of the original trees were removed, and the current Avenue has fewer replacement trees; but these were grown from cuttings, taken from the original trees.
Extract from Farmpix Photography Facebook feed:
Like a lot of towns throughout Australia, in the aftermath of World War 1 Canowindra planted an avenue of trees to commemorate the town’s service people and their sacrifices.
Back in the 1950s a young Tony Dawes then working for The Canowindra Star acquired a Box Brownie camera and started taking photos one of which is the black and white image shown here.
