Historical Notes: Dated as 1931 in Tony Simpson's "The sugarbag years". The coalition of Forbes and Coates started in September 1931, and the 1931 election was two months later, so the poster probably dates from just prior to the election, rather than being from the 1935 election (leaflet previously dated as such).
