Leaflet - 'You Must Have a Chest X-Ray', Commonwealth Department of Health, 1956 Document Reg. No: SH 980514

Leaflet titled 'You Must Have a Chest X-Ray' published by the Commonwealth Department of Health, circa 1956. It was part of a collection of promotional material used by the Booth family as they prepared to migrate to Australia. The Booth family, Ronald, Joan and their two children Ronald and Martin, migrated to Australia in 1956 under the assisted passage scheme. They left London on 18 May aboard the Strathaird and arrived in Australia in June. When they arrived in Melbourne they were taken to the migrant centre at the Royal Exhibition Building for processing and were then sent to the Brooklyn Hostel. They found Australia to be very different to how it was described in all the promotional literature they had been given in England, however they were made to feel very welcome.
