Mrs Meadows and Emily Rankin stand with a baby's pram full of flowers and decorated with Australian flags. The Commonwealth Star on the flag has six points, one each for the Australian States. The seventh point was added to the Star in 1908, representing the Territories of the Commonwealth. Emily has a Red Cross symbol on her sleeve. (Description supplied with photograph.
