Sydney Domain, 1964-1971 / photographed by Raymond de Berquelle1964-1971

by Raymond De Berquelle
The Domain has been a place for individuals to air their views since 1878 and a magnet for the political, the religious and the eccentric. Raymond de Berquelle, who had just arrived from Europe, found it amazing that no-one was ever arrested and he returned week after week for eight years to record the phenomenon. Domain speaker Tom Shone-Rogers harangued a small crowd every Sunday at 2pm with his belief that 'humane virtue, health and moral well-being have been near obliterated'.
