Laying foundation stone for the Exhibition Building

Laying foundation stone for the Exhibition Building

Crowd assembled for the laying of the foundation stone for the Jubilee Exhibition Building 21 June 1886. Official guests are on a raised platform above which flags are flying. A researcher has suggested that this photograph may have been taken after 1901 because of the flags which appear to be the official national flag of Australia, which was designed and came into use after Federation in 1901. However, this flag design may have been a precursor to the national flag as the Southern Cross constellation has been used to represent Australia since the early days of British settlement, and each of the stars has five points, unlike the national flag design, in which the stars in the Southern Cross constellation had between five and nine points, while the Commonwealth or Federation Star originally had six points.

Rundle Street

Rundle Street

Rundle Street, South Side, showing entrance to Adelaide Arcade. Smudged Sweet signature, possibly Sweet Adelaide 72 or 92. The photograph shows Rundle Street looking west from a point opposite nearby near Twin Street. The Coat of Arms on the cupola of the Adelaide Arcade is of interest. When the arcade was built in 1885 the promoters decided to hold a competition to design a Coat of Arms as there was not one at the time. There was much discussion about the Australian Colonies adopting a Coat of Arms. Later in 1908 King Edward VII officially granted the Coat of Arms but it was replaced in 1912 by King George V and the 2nd Commonwealth Coat of Arms. The difference is the positioning of the native animals and the words Advance Australia. In the photograph the electricity poles can be seen along Rundle Street. Electricity was introduced in 1895.
