Description

An illuminated address presented to Thomas Bavister, trade unionist and politician, by the Trades and Industrial Hall and Literary Institute Association of Sydney to recognise his service to the association. Illuminated addresses were a popular way to commemorate events or committed service in the late Victorian period. The address reads “Presented to Thomas Bavister, Esq. In recognition of his services as chairman of the above association from February 9th 1906 to August 8th 1906” and is signed by the serving Chairman and Secretary. It is surrounded by watercolour drawings depicting a male worker (possibly a carpenter) with his tools on the left, and insets of Sydney Heads, Trades Hall, and a Literary Institute building. It is also decorated with drawings of native flowers such as wattle, flannel flowers and Christmas Bells.
