Brief Description
Single page from the 19 October 1878 edition of Harper's Weekly, loosely mounted on cream-coloured card. On the obverse (p.828) is a full-page print with a cricket match in the centre, surrounded by bust portraits of Australian cricketers. The central image is a diagonal view of the wicket, with a marquee in the background and a hilly landscape beyond. The portraits show Australian cricketers wearing blazers, some with pillbox hats, with their names printed below. The title of the print is "THE CRICKET MATCH BETWEEN THE AUSTRALIANS AND THE NEW YORKERS, WITH PORTRAITS OF THE AUSTRALIANS - FROM SKETCHES AND PHOTOGRAPHS - [SEE PAGE 830]". On the reverse of the sheet (p.827) are four columns of text with articles on various unrelated subjects.
