The Broken Hill Trades Hall Trust
The Broken Hill Trades Hall Trust collection is housed in the historic Trades Hall building in Broken Hill, on Wilyakali Country, in the Far West of New South Wales.
The Trades Hall building was built from 1891 to 1905 and is a renowned example of Victorian-era civic architecture.
Dating from the late nineteenth century, the Trades Hall Trust collection contains important documents and artefacts associated with the history of the union movement in Broken Hill. This includes historic union badges, banners and signs, two large Amalgamated Miners Association flags, picket maps from the famous 1909 Lockout strike, as well as correspondence, invoices and dockets.
