Description

Procession halted in front of the Toowoomba Hall. Labor Day parade celebrates the eight hour working day. Processions with banners were a feature of the later medieval period. The metalworkers' banner has a medieval predecessor in the banners used by guilds (an association of craftsmen in the same trade), with each guild having a banner to show their trade.
