Description

This drawing depicts an entertainment called '203' in progress with three of the cast on the stage - John Woods, Jack Smith and Harry Smith. The entertainment was suprisingly lavish considering the lack of material, paint etc. The inscription on the wall is a verse of 'Advance Australia Fair'.
