Description:

Australian Federation Stereo card of the Swearing-in Pavillion, Commonwealth Celebrations, Centennial Park, Sydney. The ‘Swearing in Pavilion’ was the final destination of the procession. It was here that the Governor, Lord Hopetoun, made the proclamation declaring Australia’s Commonwealth. The pavilion itself was unusual in that the plaster was unpainted to keep its pure white finish and highlighted its Corinthian pilasters in the otherwise denuded landscape of Centennial Park.
