Australia's oldest known printed document repatriated from Canada


It’s a playbill advertising a performance at a theatre in Sydney on 30 July 1796. It’s thought to be the oldest known document printed in Australia, using a printing press that was brought with the First Fleet. How it ended up in Canada is unclear.

A nice gesture on the part of the Canadian PM Stephen Harper.

My doctors surgery has a Readers Digest which I am positive predates that.
