The Australians toured England in 1930 and regained the Ashes. They won the 2nd and 5th Tests, England won the first, and the 3rd and 4th Tests were drawn. This photo is part of a series (M1935 - 1947). It was produced to advertise (Kaylo) 'Gripu' trousers worn by the Australian cricketers during the 1930 Test. Above the figures on the grey card is the inscription: 'AUSTRALIAN TEST TEAM / 1930'. and beneath them it reads 'A. JACKSON SHAKING HANDS WITH D.G. BRADMAN'.
