AUSTRALIAN XI INFORMAL TEAM PHOTO – 2nd TEST SYDNEY (18/12/1936)

This item is a very rare informal team photo of the Australian Test XI vs England literally taken minutes before Australia’s 1st innings of the second Test at the S.C.G. on 18/12/1936.

A magnificent quality original team photograph taken of the Australian XI chosen for the 2nd Test in Sydney 1936.  It is of informal style and no doubt taken literally minutes before Australia’s commencement of its 1st innings of this, the second Test, at the Sydney Cricket Ground.  Note Stan McCabe, Jack Fingleton and “The Don” are padded-up and ready for battle.

Plenty of casual poses and of a relaxed nature (even Bradman is managing a smile!)  This photo is probably unique and measures approx. 26 cm x 20 cm.  Original white and black ink to the legends, of superb quality and the first I have handled as such…
