Description - Glorious Days by Michelle Hetherington

The year 1913 was a fascinating and important time for Australians, although the events of the following year have tended to cast a retrospective shadow over it. In places as far apart as Antarctica, Papua and Great Britain, Australian ambitions were high; the new navy was a source of national pride; the arts flourished and the motor car and movies were having their first impacts. This richly illustrated book, which supports an exhibition of the same name at the National Museum of Australia, takes the reader into life in Australia in 1913, from the experiences of ordinary Australians, to the emerging place of this new nation in the world.
