Something Borrowed

The Federal Years at Victoria's Parliament House

Publisher Description

Meeting together for the first time in 1901, Australia’s new Commonwealth Parliament settled into life in Melbourne, the nation’s first capital. 


It was a time of nation-building that saw major national institutions established, key debates held on the new nation’s development, and laws passed that would shape the way Australians lived for years to come.


Produced by the Parliament of Victoria to mark the 90th anniversary of the Commonwealth Parliament’s final sitting in Melbourne, ‘Something Borrowed’ tells the story of those pioneering 26 years on Spring Street and explores some of the forgotten and unknown stories of the Federal Parliament’s formative years.
