I'll bet you didn't expect to see a wheel from Australia and we didn't expect to get a hold of one, but here it is. I'm not sure how useful this wheel would have been, but I guess it's interesting enough. I don't think it's very attractive, though. Nevertheless, this wheel proved so popular during the 150th Australian Anniversary Commemorative Pavilion at the Royal Easter Show in 1938, that "...many thousands of people could not secure copies. . . ." Really? Many thousands? People from across the land wrote in requesting one! It makes you wonder what crappy souvenirs the other pavilions were offering. But volvelles are cool, so you can hardly blame them. After all, WE bought one! I salute the N.S.W. Railway for offering it.
This is is made of very sturdy cardboard and measures nine and three-quarters inches. It includes the towns of Dubbo, Murwillumbah, and Wagga Wagga.
