John Martin’s Christmas Pageant: Christmas Tree Girls, 1953 (B 69087/15)

Remembering the Adelaide Christmas Pageant 1945 - 1995, from the collections of the State Library of South Australia.

In 1933 John Martin & Co. presented its first Christmas Pageant as a gift to the people of South Australia. The event has continued, come rain or shine, every second Saturday in November, except for the war years of 1939 - 1945. This exhibition shows images of this iconic event taken by a range of photographers, both amateur and professional, belonging to the State Library's pictorial collections.
