Canberra Centenary Gala Albert Hall

100 years ago, those in the know, and those who could, descended upon the Molonglo plains in the newly formed Australian Capital Territory, to name the place Canberra - the Australian national capital

And as part of the celebrations, The Lounge Bar Lotharios, Sydney's authentic 1920s Dance Orchestra, were invited to play at Canberra's Albert Hall for the Roaring 20s Ball

Canberra 100 Festival Creative Director, Robyn Archer, launched the Ball. Please enjoy the happy snaps I took on the night...
