Australian ephemera collection (General)

Summary

A collection of printed ephemera concerned with the referendums conducted across the six separate British self-governing colonies of Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia, and Western Australia during 1898, 1899 and 1900, leading them to unite and form the Commonwealth of Australia, establishing a system of federalism in Australia. In 1895 a proposal was accepted by the premiers of the Australian colonies to establish a new Convention by popular vote, with the resulting draft of the constitution being submitted to the electors of each colony in a referendum.
