Cool video of Canberra in the 1920s

Canberra in the making video

Just came across this compilation video of Canberra in the 1920s, via the National Film and Sound Archive. Interesting footage of Old Parliament House being built, the Hyatt (I think) and early Civic.

Thought it was worth sharing! Check it out here.

I can’t get the sound to work.

Get one of your kids to pound away on a piano

Proof that the “costly and unneeded” Capital in The Bush “will never work”

Thank you me Lady for posting it. Interesting seeing Civic there all on its lonesome.
