    'Under a glaring sun these man, clad in the scantiest costume, and with head and shoulders swathed in a bag, work cheerfully through the day, building a monument to the genius that enables Australia to maintain her place amongst the wheat-producing countries of the world'.

    [from the catalogue to 'Exhibition of etchings by E. Warner. First series of 'Australia at work' together with some glimpses of our little known land'; Fine Art Society galleries, Melbourne, 20 November - 7 December 1935.]
