Classic Photographs Of Whitlam In Brisbane Labor Day March, 1973.


Took a few shots of the big fella which could be of interest to Labor devotees and the occasional Liberal leader. Whitlam, that day, was marching to his own proud, triumphant tune. The sub-titled emotional lyrics are in English, little wonder the chorus was in tears at the end. The photos were taken from opposite Royal Art Furnishers/Empire (?) Hotel, down a bit from St Pauls Tce and near The Whisky-a-gogo atrocity, a block up from the Valley Corner and a kilometre from the parade’s Exhibition grounds destination. The first picture features (Sir) Egerton  then Himself with Clem Jones in the middle. The names of the lesser luminaries escapes me. The second features two defining examples of The Salute. The third picture shows Brunswick Street looking toward New Farm. What’s become of the Printer’s Union Standard?
