This photo was taken during the final of the Women's 220 yards held on 12 February. It shows the three favorites for the race, drawn in lanes 4, 5 and 6, at a part of the track where some holes in lanes 3, 4, 5 and 6 had been discovered and hastily filled (notice patches in photo) just before the race.

2017-03-21 02:25 q.m. S.S. Maunganui with the Sydney Harbour Bridge in background, New South Wales, ca. 1930s (Version)
Just looking at the state of construction on the Sydney Harbour Bridge, I'd say this pic was taken in later 1930...possibly November 1930. Per the shipping items in the digitised newspapers, R.M.S. Maunganui was in Sydney on a monthly basis in later 1930...<br/><br/><a href='http://trove.nla.gov.au/work/187782485'>http://trove.nla.gov.au/work/187782485</a> - this pic taken in early November 1930 shows the Harbour Bridge in a slightly earlier state of construction...<br/><br/><a href='https://www.flickr.com/photos/anmm_thecommons/12625484163/'>h...
