Notes

Part of the collection entitled: Scenes in central Sydney during the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games, 20 August-27 October 2000.

"Thousands of volunteers from around Australia were given specially designed uniforms and hats for easy identification. These three volunteers were on Macquarie Street getting ready for the women's marathon. The cards round their necks were passes used by athletes, officials and volunteers of the Games. Different symbols on them indicated where and when they could access areas and photo identities ensured the passes could not be improperly used"--Photographer's caption.
