Jeremy Says –

This is a photo of the parade up Collins St in Melbourne, 1907 watched by 70,000 people and led by 22 Victorian brass bands. I never expected to see a photo like this! I'm currently in the midst of writing a blog post about bands that toured Australia in the early 1900's. Is it possible to have permission to use this photo in a blog post? Proper attribution to the MDMA will be given in the caption and in the references and the name of the uploader can be entered as well if requested.
