Governor Hindmarsh's Proclamation jigsaw puzzle

A jigsaw puzzle in colour depicting a painting of Governor Hindmarsh's Proclamation on 28th December 1836. Governor Hindmarsh and other officials stand in the centre, under an old gum tree, with soldiers standing in formation behind, and citizens gathered to watch the ceremony. In the background, a group of Aboriginal people watch the proceedings from a distance. Text from the puzzle: 'Governor Hindmarsh's Proclamation - 1836. on 28th December, 1836, Governor Hindmarsh landed from H.M.S. 'Buffalo' at Holdfast Bay, Glenelg, and the Proclamation establishing the Government of South Australia was read. The ceremony took place near an old gum tree, which together with the land on which it stood, later came into the possession of Mr. John Hector, the first officer of The Savings Bank of South Australia. In 1857, when South Australia came of age, Mr. Hector ceded the property to the Glenelg Corporation so that the historic tree could be preserved as a memorial. Issued by The Savings Bank of South Australia'. On the back of the paper envelope is an advertisement for The Savings Bank of South Australia: 'My Bank' to more than half a million South Australians', with a photograph of the Head Office building in King William Street, Adelaide, and a list of South Australian branch offices.
