Black and white photograph of four women jumping over hurdles, Shirley Strickland in the lead, almost fully over the hurdle as the others run up to it. She wears a light sleeveless top, dark shorts with a single stripe, and dark spikes. The photograph is darker towards the edges, casting Shirley into shadows.
A purple HERALD SUN stamp is on the reverse, below "Royal Park- Melbourne" handwritten in pencil.
