Corn (2010) copyright Jo Malham

Like the digital image of the same name, ‘Forgotten Australians – Corn’ relates directly to a story told by Forgotten Australian, Ernie Malham. When he was living at Burwood Boys Home the children were not actually starved but there was certainly not a lot of food. Ernie cleverly supplemented this when he walked past fields where corn was growing by picking a cob of corn and eating it fresh off the stalk. Ernie still enjoys eating corn!
