For cricket fans we have this neat little Souvenir Programme of the Australian Tour 1954-55. 96 pp with an ad for Stamina slacks at the rear cover, ah, those were the days. Authorised by the NSW Cricket Assoc, printed by Bridge Printery in Reservoir St, Sydney. Contnts are listed as programme of matches, photos of players, score sheets, cricket records, items of interest and an etc. Faults? The page that has an ad for Tooheys Flag Ale has pencilled scribble & a rip (maybe a Reschs drinker??), the page that has an ad for balls is also scribbled on, 2 of the scoring pp have pencil scribble, one scoring page has red pencil numbers & its facing page has fountain pen notes & numbers about . . .(wait for it). . betting!!Shock-horror!!Another two scoring pp actually have cricket scores/data entered. There's some stains on some of the pages (Reschs or tea, who knows). So in summary it's not for someone who wants a mint copy, it's more for someone who'll appreciate the flavour of the times & will show it to mates when they come around for a BBQ & a chat. I think it's got a certain sporty charisma.
