Bendigo

Ulumbarra Theatre, Bendigo (Australia) Ulumbarra Theater, Bendigo (Australien)

Wax figure with General’s costume used in the Bendigo Easter Fair processions. It dates from the 1870s and was imported from China. The military general led the Chinese Easter parade in 1879. In 1871, the Chinese community joined the Bendigo Easter Fair and Procession (which began in 1869) to assist fundraising for charity. Providing music, theatre and acrobatic displays, the Chinese section of the Procession soon became the main attraction.

January 30: difficult to get a full picture of the building, but I'm pretty impressed with this result. The Capital Theatre is the theatrical centre of Bensigo, and quite frankly, it is simply a magnificent building. I wish I was better funded to patronize it more frequently...
