                     The only surviving moving image of Edmund Barton shows the parade and ceremony in
                     Sydney on 1 January 1901 to celebrate the inauguration of the Commonwealth, filmed
                     by the Salvation Army’s Limelight Department. The footage shows the parade through
                     the streets of Sydney, arrival at Centennial Park and the signing of the Federation
                     document thus creating the Commonwealth of Australia.

                     We also have footage of the house at the Rocks in Sydney NSW, where Barton lived as a
                     child.

                     No recorded sound exists in the collection featuring Edmund Barton, but we do have a
                     partly dramatized biography of Barton and the reminiscences of the Hon. John Drake,
                     who speaks about early Australian politics from the first Parliament and his position as
                     Postmaster General.
