A little Australian history lesson! Around the time my little press 'Mavis' was manufactured

A little history lesson! 'Mavis' my Golding Pearl Old Style #3 was manufactured in 1893, Boston, USA. It was shipped to Sydney where it remained until I dragged her over to Perth. I thought it would be nice to research the events that were shaping Australia during the 1890's, when my little press would have been 'brand new' and in full operation! 'An Australian Native' By Tom Roberts, 1888 The 1890's The British had only been colonised in Australia for just over 100 years! 1890 - 6 April - Banjo Patterson's The Man from Snowy River is published. 1891 - 5 January - The 1891 Australian shearers' strike begins, which leads to the formation of the Australian Labor Party. 1893 - 14 June - Gold
