Contextual Information

Image is the same as one included in a set of three proof prints in the Shire of Toodyay's museum collection: acc no. 2001.1027.
Believed to have been taken as promotional material for the Toodyay Tourist Centre, which managed many events and festivals at Toodyay from the late 1970s to the 1990s. In 1998 the Toodyay Tourist Centre Inc. amalgamated with the Shire of Toodyay and its assets were transferred to the Shire including, it is assumed, these proof prints.
