Lost at the Royal Easter Show, Moore Park18 April 1938

Many Sydney children have fond memories of attending the Royal Easter Show at Moore Park (now relocated to Homebush). Rides, farm animals, agricultural displays and particularly showbags were all part of the fun. Getting lost at the Show was not such a happy experience. This photograph shows a worried Teresa Hughes and her grinning brother Clem being taken in by Mrs Hoffman at the lost children's tent. Also lost is Ray Thomas of Auburn who is clutching his sample bags (the visible one is Lifesavers– a popular Australian sweet).
