Family Photo Albums Of Stan McCabe, Australian Test Cricketer

1910s-1930s. Three photograph albums containing 200 vintage silver gelatin photographs, two albums are annotated with captions and some dated in ink on album page below images, sizes range from 4.9 x 3cm to 24.4 x 19.2cm. Minor silvering, most images laid down on album page.

Albums contain many family photographs, including beach holidays; outings to Taronga Zoo, Circular Quay and Centennial Park; family pets; groups of women including Edna McCabe (Stan’s wife) on the tennis court; and cricket team mates Jack Gregory and Warren Bardsley. Other images of interest are of the joining of Sydney Harbour Bridge; an autographed photograph of author William John Locke and contralto singer Clara Butt; and two photographs of French tennis champion Jean Borotra.

Also included in the albums are a cabinet card of a boy and his uncle, some newspaper clippings of tennis players, and an invitation for a “Complimentary dinner tendered by the NSW Lawn Tennis Association to the NSW members of the 1928 Davis Cup Team and Women’s Overseas Team”, signed by attendees.

Stan McCabe (1910-1968) was an Australian cricketer who played 39 Test matches for Australia from 1930 to 1938, and was vice-captain to Sir Donald Bradman. In 1935 he married Edna May Linton, and they had two children. McCabe died in 1968 near his family home, while trying to dispose of a dead possum which resulted in a fall from a cliff at Beauty Point, Mosman. He was inducted into the Cricket Hall of Fame in 2002. Ref: Wiki; ADB.
