Brief Description
Monochrome lithograph after an 1887 painting of a cricket match at Lord's between England and Australia. The scene is imaginary as the Australians did not tour England that year, but the cricketers are real, and some can be identified. The spectators in the foreground are depicted in detail, and among them are Prince Edward and Princess Alexandra. To the right of the image is the second Lord's pavilion which stood from 1825-1889. Below the main print are cameo portraits of English and Australian cricketers. In the l.r. written into the bench seating are the artist's names, "R. Ponsonby Staples; G.H. Barrable". The item is housed in a grey coloured card mount.
