Summary

Image 25000051 - The Sydney Harbour Bridge during the Australian Sesquicentenary Celebrations in 1938, with a steamship in the foreground.

The pageant "Australia's March to Nationhood," which was the imposing initial item in the 150th anniversary celebrations of New South Wales, and which symbolised the milestones in Australia’s 150 years of history and development from the days of its struggling infancy, was one of the most magnificent and stirring spectacles ever seen in the Commonwealth. It took more than 1½ hours to pass a given point, and it was about 1½ miles in length. From the Royal Australian Historical Society (RAHS), Australia’s oldest historical organisation founded in Sydney in 1901, promotes the study of Australian history.
