Title: Advertisement for Dunlop tyres: Canberra!
Date published: 25-Feb-2004
Series/Report no.: Series in the Dunlop Rubber (Australia) Limited collection comprising 16 volumes of advertising material from the period 1910-1938.
The main caption is: 'Australia's Day & Australia's Tyre.' An advertisement that incorporates a drawing of a ceremony at Parliament House in Canberra. The scene is viewed from above and is framed by an Australian flag wrapped around a Dunlop tyre. Large crowds and soldiers are in attendance as the Duke of York arrives in a horse drawn carriage to officially open the building on 9 May 1927. The front entrance is crowned by an arrangement of flags and drapes and the area has been made festive with more flags and strings of pennants. Dame Nellie Melba sang the national anthem. The text argues that Dunlop has contributed to Australia's coming-of-age by providing the wherewithal for motor vehicles to open up the country.
