About this object

This small book of scenes and pressed flowers from the Holy Land was bought in 1912 from Bethlehem and contains alternate pages of vistas from the Holy Land and pressed flowers. It was sent as a present to Miss Beatrice Watson in 1928 so that she could see and understand where the soldier, Anthony Balzanno of Tasmania had been. It is not recorded on the records how he knew Beatrice from Coal Creek, Roxburgh, Central Otago, New Zealand.
