I find some fascinating information in online historical archives. This woodcarving, dated 5 August, 1882, is described as ‘showing residents of Fitzroy “beating the boundaries” with wands in honour of the annexation of a portion of Brunswick’. The banner in the foreground states ‘Fitzroy proclaimed a Municipality 1858’.
