Artist's Description

The oldest Wintergarten theatre in Rockhampton Qld.- Attempted clean up??
Were they digging for some historic Promotional
Big Book?
‘’In Rockhampton, local personnel were also employed in regular promotions of the same kind. According to one of these:
One of the main promotions was a big book which rested in the bowels of the Wintergarden down in the snake pit. This big book would be brought out at times and toured around the streets when a big movie came to town… the biggest one was Davy Crockett; they had buckboards and Indians and Davy Crockett outfits. They went through the streets from the Earls Court to the School of Arts.32
Promotions such as these drew on traditions of showmanship and vaudeville, although some had unintended consequences. When a mock fire was staged at the Maryborough Wintergarden, another employee recalled that:
I got into a trouble over that… There was a poor old Chinese fellow next door and he thought it was real.33’’ FUJI FILM finepix S1000fd
