Brief Description
From page 31 of the album, a sepia photograph of men "sparring" on the deck of a ship. A wooden pole extends across the width of the deck, on which one man sits, legs either side, holding a pillow, having successfully knocked his opponent off the log onto the padded mats below. Spectators on the deck are laughing. Thought to be members of the Australian cricket team on board the "Ormuz" travelling to England in 1899.
