Two photographs of Women Cricketers.

Adelaide: 1893.

Silver prints measuring 4-5/8 x 5-3/4 in. Mounted on archival board. Very good. Item #304054

A lovely set of pictures: the first being a portrait of the team showing thirteen women in uniform and hats with bats and ball front and centre. The second image is a shot of a ladies match in progress, the umpire seemingly signalling a no ball.

On the verso of each is inscribed "Ladies Cricket Team 93" and then "Ladies Cricket Match Adelaide." These images of some interest as they preceed the formation of the first women's cricket league in Australia in 1894 under the direction of Lily Poulett-Harris.
