This display concentrated on Alfred Charles Bignell and members of the Mawson family, all of whom had long-term associations in the area close to the Balwyn Library. Alf established a dairy in Parring Road, Balwyn after WWI.
There were two display cases at Hawthorn Library. The one in the local history room contained items of WWI uniform on loan from Colin Robinson of the Victorian Re-enactment Society. In the main library the display case featured two stories with local links.
