Description

A very large crowd gathered in Martin Place to celebrate Armistice Day. A replica sailing ship, festooned with lights has been set up like a stage (right) for dignitaries to address the crown from. Senior military figures and military bandsmen playing their instruments are also on the ship. A bandstand with a domed roof is visible in the background.
