2017-07-18 04:40 JPEditor Scoreboard with scaffolding at the Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney ca. 1920s (Version)
This photo depicts the new scoreboard being built at the Sydney Cricket Ground in 1924, directly behind the old board (first used in 1896) that it replaced. The old scoreboard was designed by Ned Gregory, a major figure in the early days of Australian cricket, who played in the first ever test match in 1877 and was the curator of the Sydney Cricket Ground for many years. The 1924 scoreboard kept the same basic design as Gregory's but it was a far more impressive structure, built of reinforced concrete and brick.<br/><br/>A cropped version of th...

This photo is rather historic as it depicts Victorian pace bowler Harry Alexander's one and only test wicket. It was taken at the Sydney Cricket Ground on the morning of 27 February 1933, the fourth day in the 5th Test of the 1932-33 cricket series (often called the Bodyline series) between Australia and England. <br/><br/>A cropped version of the photo appeared in that day's edition of <i>The Sun</i>:<br/><a href='http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/228912395'>http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/228912395</a><br/><br/>Brought into ...

Here we see earlier 20th century University of Melbourne economist Douglas Copland...during the early 1930s he was one of a group of Australian economists who understood that governments needed to adopt expansionary fiscal policies in order to stimulate economic growth and counter the deflationary spiral which resulted from the collapse in world trade following the 1929 Wall St crash...though his support for limited expansionary measures and controlled inflation put him at odds with the conservatives who ran banking and finance, who advocated b...
