This comes from the year prohibition was lifted in Canberra. Yes, thanks to King O'Malley our tea-total Minister for home affairs of the day Canberra was once a dry town 1913- 1929. If you wanted a beer you went to Queanbeyan. Simple. Well this clipping is a testament to Canberra's festivities with the train load of empties that left for Sydney after Christmas/ New years 1929...

All the best for the New Year my friend.
