50th Anniversary of Opening of Parliament House 13.4.1977

This stamp and the first day cover were issued on 13.4.1977 commemorating the 50th annniversary of Parliament House, Canberra, in 1977. Now know as Old Parliament House, it is situated between Parliament House and Lake Burley Griffin. Although initially built as a temporary parliament house, government stayed there from 1927 right until 1988, when a new Parliament House opened.

Thank you Maria.
