Abstract

In 1888 Australians flocked to Melbourne for the magnificent Opening Ceremony of the Melbourne Centennial Exhibition, celebrating the centenary of European settlement in Australia. Like other international exhibitions in the nineteenth century, it was an awe-inspiring event to which almost everyone was invited: an event where visitors viewed the greatest achievements of mankind and participated enthusiastically in the festivities, pomp and ceremony.
