Extended caption: 

Application for relief rations, Queensland 1931. The Depression era forced many Queenslanders to seek aid from the government. To receive relief rations, applicants filled out this form which requested details of their financial and marital status, time of unemployment and whether they had received relief before. After signing the back of the form, final approval was provided by a police officer who verified the applicant’s identity, commented on their character and recommended how long they should be supported. Queensland parliamentary papers, vol 2, 1931
