Name or Title Golden Casket Lottery Machine, Electrically Driven
Production Place Queensland/Australia
Production Date Circa 1934
History and Use

This electric gaming machine was made by Brisbane Engineer John Lund in 1933 and used by the Golden Casket Lottery from 1934. It replaced Lund’s hand cranked machine the Lottery had been using since 1932.
The Golden Casket Lottery was first conceived during World War 1 by the Entertainment Committee of the Queensland Patriotic Fund to raise funds for veterans of the War. The first draw was in June 1917. The first five Golden Casket Art Unions raised £24,138 for the Australian Soldiers Repatriation Fund and £37,115 for the building of Anzac Cottages for war widows and their families.
By 1920 the Golden Casket had evolved into Australia’s first government-run lottery. Over the years, the proceeds have gone to numerous causes, and many of Queensland's existing hospitals and health services have benefited from funds raised by the Golden Casket. On 29 June 2007 Golden Casket Lottery Corporation became a wholly owned subsidiary of Tattersall's Limited.

Classification CH classification DOCUMENTS Education braille board
Name or Title Braille Slate - Society for the Blind pamphlet
History and Use

This pamphlet was produced by the Queensland Musical, Literary and Self Aid Society for the Blind, formed in 1918 in Brisbane. Also known as QML or the Society for the Blind, it focused on enabling the blind to learn and enjoy music and literature. The need for services for the blind increased during and after World War 1 due to the number of returned servicemen who lost their sight as a result of their service.

Braille writing dates from the Napoleonic wars of the early 1800s, when a system called night writing was developed to allow soldiers in Bonaparte’s French army to communicate safely at night. It was subsequently adapted by Frenchman Louis Braille into the alphabet used today.

By the late 1890s Queensland had its own Braille Writing Society, with the members transcribing books, often by hand.
