Hooper & Co. collection
This collection's primary significance is an association with the Daimler DE 36hp vehicles commissioned for the 1948 royal tour of Australia and ultimately used during the 1954 royal tour. It offers a unique level of research detail in documenting the earliest-known provenance for the Daimler motor car held within the Museum's National Historical Collection. This prestigious car has relevance to broad areas of Australian history including the changing role of the monarchy in Australia, transport technologies and the relationship between Australians and their British heritage.
