P2871-7

On Friday 4 January, three days after the swearing in ceremonies, another part of the Federation celebrations was held in the grounds of Centennial Park. This spectacle, the ‘Military and Naval Review of Troops’ was captured by numerous photographers, including George Rose. In this particular image we can see two photographers, one with a hand held detective camera, taking pictures of the 105 Indian troops who had arrived in Sydney on the Dalhousie only five days previously.
