Three males pushing a cart loaded with rubber down a road.

Boy scouts conduct a house-to-house collection for scrap rubber in Perth, July 1942. Youngsters went to special matinees at the Majestic Theatre. Entry was paid with a scrap of aluminium for the War Effort. Many aluminium saucepans, casseroles, kettles etc. were sacrificed.
