Our most calamitous economic crisis, Australia’s key exports all but collapsed, national income declined by a third, and unemployment was over 30% at its worst. For those lucky enough to have a job, the average weekly wage was about £3. With money so tight, the idea of popping a ‘fiver’ away as a keepsake would have been deemed crazy by most Australians.
