Trove Tuesday - Australian Women's Weekly

For this week's Trove Tuesday post I was lucky enough to find mention of a family member in The Australian Women's Weekly.

The Australian Women's Weekly, 19 December 1956, p. 46
Royal Melbourne Championship Show 1956
McWilliam's
Awarded
T.C. Seabrook Trophy
for 
Most Successful Exhibitor
In all still table wine classes


Thomas Claudius Seabrook was a wine merchant and judge. You can read his biography in The Australian Dictionary of Biography here.

An advertisement taken out by McWilliams in The Argus of 5th November 1956 states that this was the first year this award was presented.

  1. A very pretty ad as well as a family find. The AWW is a great source but I think the ones they've digitised came from NSW/Vic not Qld.
