Program - 10th World's Christian Endeavour Convention, Melbourne, 2-8 Aug 1938 Reg. No: HT 35102
- Program for the 'Tenth World's Christian Endeavour Convention', held at the Exhibition Building in Melbourne from 2-8 August 1938. The international convention was held in the year before war broke out, and the message published by the president of the World's Christian Endeavour Union made it clear that peace would come through belief in Christ.
As well as a very detailed program of daily activities and listings of exhibitions within the building, the program features a number of photographic portraits of men-of-the-cloth and other senior men in politics. There are also two pull-outs, one with a layout of the Exhibition Building, and another an aerial-view photograph of Melbourne.
- Small booklet, with cream card cover, stapled at spine. Front cover features a stylized image of a heraldic shield, garland and trumpet. All printed in green and purple. Inside pages printed in black and white.
