The United States of America’s Great White Fleet

The United States of America’s Great White Fleet visited the Australian shores 100 years ago to the day.

What a photo opportunity we all missed. This event was of national importance here and was nearly akin in popularity to a proposed visit by a reining royal monarch, which was not realised for another 46 years.

Think that our county, being federated as a nation only 7 years prior to that visit saw it as a confirmation of a nation of importance by a (potential) world power.

Wonder if anybody has great grandparent’s photos of the Great While Fleet hidden away?
