This chapter focuses on the participation of India and Australia in overseas exhibitions, which offered visitors a dichotomy between future and past, settler and subject, and raw materials and artisanal crafts. In addition, exhibits also created a sense of place for the colonies, both within the British Empire and in popular notions of Australian and Anglo-Indian history.
