Description

Historic Photograph - location unknown

tod’s company also designed and crafted honour boards in a classical style. A photograph from the Tod archive shows a large honour roll made by the company for the Pennant Hills & Thornleigh district. The board survives in the Thornleigh Community Centre. The memorial is framed by a pair of fluted Ionic pilasters supporting a pediment, directly referencing the elements of classical architecture of ancient Greece. The pediment is decorated in relief with a central evergreen laurel wreath, which symbolises victory, eternity, resurrection, glory and honour; and branches of olive, symbolising peace. Such classical references were intended to evoke ideas of simplicity, timelessness, universality and longevity. It was also an aesthetic that could connote reverence devoid of any specific religious overtones.
