Why We Love This

A great souvenir tin from the 1956 Melbourne Olympics, made by MA Craven. Front scene shows the main stadium, and the sides show the flags of the countries who participated. Though the back is scratched, you can see that it has a map of Melbourne. Cookies or cakes were probably sold in this tin, maybe stationary, as a souvenir. The Latin term on the front means "we gather strength as we go."
