2017-04-20 20:08 q.m. Workers completing road repairs, New South Wales, ca.1930 (Version)
Here we're on New South Head Rd at Edgecliff/Double Bay...looking outbound...the distinctive Sandstone retaining wall we see here was part of 'Friarscroft', which I gather was located at 315 New South Head Road, per the current street numbering...<br/><br/>I suspect these workers might be widening the road and putting down new kerbing and guttering...per various digitised newspaper hits, quite a few sections of New South Head Road were widened in the mid-later 1920s.<br/><br/><a href='http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/222943427'>trove.n...

2017-04-20 18:03 JPEditor Australia bowling during the second Test at the Sydney Cricket Ground, large crowd and scoreboard in background, 1936/37 Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) tour of Australia (Version)
This photo was taken during the second day (Saturday, 19 December 1936) of the 2nd Test between Australia and England in the 1936-37 M.C.C. tour. The venue is the Sydney Cricket Ground, and England, having batted first, are in a commanding position. The visitors resumed at 3 for 279 on the second day and have now advanced their score to 5 for 388.<br/><br/>We can place the time of day reasonably accurately from the many newspaper descriptions of the day's proceedings, e.g., here:<br/><a href='http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/193594248...
