The Snowy Mountains Scheme, in New South Wales is recognised as an engineering and construction marvel which brought thousands of migrants to Australia. The Scheme took 25 years to build and when it was completed in 1974, seven power stations, 16 dams and 225 kilometres of tunnels, pipelines and aqueducts had been constructed.
This original super fine 1963 Snowy Mountains Scheme bi-fold wallet is a nostalgic reminder of the 100,000 men that found themselves in one of the most isolated and inhospitable places in Australia. The work was physically demanding, dirty and often dangerous but somehow this wallet came out trumps! Features include a button coin pocket, 1963 calendar, windowed photo holder, zipped note holder.
