Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip in Australia 1954

A photograph from the Australian Royal tour in 1954. Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip can be seen standing on the back of a moving vehicle. The Queen accessorizes her outfit with gloves, a string of pearls and a hat.
The tour was heralded as a great success by British royal watchers and Australian monarchists alike. Australians fell in love with the young couple and the 8-week tour, stopping at 70 towns and cities, was documented in the film The Queen in Australia (1954)

A young Caucasian girl cuddles a joey in front of a wooden door

A colour image of a young Caucasian girl (Frances Hattam, who plays Carol) looking down at a baby kangaroo (joey) that she firmly embraces in her arms. They are posed in front of a corrugated iron shed with a weatherboard door, on which hangs a heart shaped lock. This image was shot while filming Nullarbor Hideout 1964: Bored during the summer holidays and escaping the heat, a group of kids (and their joey!) from Cook, on the Nullarbor Plain, discover a limestone cave with a huge underground lake. Meanwhile in town, a detective is called in from Port Augusta to investigate a stolen car and some sinister kangaroo shooters. When the kids discover their tucker and canoe have disappeared, they decide to do some investigating of their own. An Australian black and white short film written and directed by Tim Burstall (Alvin Purple)

The building that is now the Arthouse Hotel on Pitt street can be seen in the image. There are now only two lanes on the street and travel in the opposite direction towards Pitt Street Mall
