This is a black-and-white photograph of an orderly procession of women walking four or five abreast past Brisbane's Treasury Building in the city centre on 2 February 1912, a day that became known as 'Black Friday'. The majority of the women appear to be dressed in their best and wearing hats for the occasion. Several horsedrawn carriages have been held up by the marchers. There are male and female onlookers on the footpaths, as well as a policeman, but there appears to be no attempt as yet to restrict the women's movements.
