This photo was taken at Coogee Oval in Sydney on 17 January 1930. It shows visiting German middle distance runner Otto Peltzer trying his hand at high jumping. See here for other photos of him doing so on the same occasion:

http://trove.nla.gov.au/version/199370181

The photos were taken during a training session that Peltzer was having with his protégé Gerhard Emton on that day. The high jumping apparatus had been primarily set up for Emton, as can be seen from this link to a group of photos of Emton practising that event on the day:

Peltzer had earlier loosened up the ground for his protégé prior to the practice session, as shown in this photo:

Also see this link to photos of Peltzer and Emton practicing starts during this same training session:
