Wouldn't it be great if we could all get together here in the States for a Repeal The 19th Amendment Rally and Parade.
Hmmm. Interesting. Raising Sun flag and German Cross. Well, maybe the cross wasn't black.
The sign on the top front of the car says "The Allies", and next to it sits Queen Elizabeth with a Union Jack. I can't tell what flags the other figures are holding.
I believe this one was taken in Australia as well.
Japan was an ally against the Germans in the Great War, and I think the cross is probably red, maybe fund-raising for ambulances. The T appears to be RHD and those sidelamps look rather British or European to me. Any idea where the photo came from?
I think it could be Melbourne, Australia. I tried a couple of searches from the company names on the walls, and come up with the following websites. The second web page has the Collins Street address.
Searched for Han Irvine's Champion Prize Wines.
Thank you for your time
The addresses of 79 and 85 Collins St brought up several residential locations outside Brisbane, but nothing commercial in the town of Brisbane.
Maybe it has all gone, but I suspect a different city with RHD vehicles.
I got Brisbane mixed up with Melbourne, old age, the mind is the second thing to go...
It seems to be Melbourne, the buildings seem very similar. It is amazing that we can find out all this stuff, the power of the collective brain power of this Forum and the web never cease to amaze me.
