Brief Description
A mounted reproduction black and white photograph from page 31 of the album, 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 for the 1st test in 1899. Mount is cream. Reverse has three black and one white Velcro squares attached.
