A big day out
One hundred years ago, with the beginning of the First World War, loyalty and fun came together at a Grand Patriotic Carnival at Five Dock Park.
Some of the more unusual events included a ladies nail-driving competition, a greasy pig chase, guessing the number of nails in a bottle and guessing the dead weight of a sheep. The bottle of nails, quite practically, was later one of the items on offer in a special auction.
The funds raised by the the Grand Patriotic Carnival went to the Five Dock and Abbotsford Patriotic Fund.
The full program can be seen on flickr.
