About this object

Framed picture of the Main Roads Depot Cricket Club, 1937-38
Black and white image of 14 men, arranged in 3 rows, with the first row seated. Formal photograph taken in photography studio. 13 of the men are wearing white uniforms with the remainder in three piece suits. Four round picture inserts have been affixed to the upper part of the photograph. Photograph has two square borders, closest to photograph in grey, edged in thick black border. Frame is wooden with glass front. Glass is broken in lower right hand corner. It seems likely that the hanging wire is not original as it is thick and crudely twisted.
