[Punters At Rosehill Races, Sydney]

1954. Group of four vintage silver gelatin photographs, each signed and dated in pencil with photographer’s stamp and some with label or caption in pencil verso, 20.3 x 25.5cm to 24.2 x 28cm. Some with dents or minor handling crinkles, slight wear to corners.

Captions read “Rosehill Races.” Two labels read (1) “A day at the races. Punters collecting from the bookmakers”; and (2) “A day at the races. Racetrack litter of discarded betting slips. Before the advent of the photo-finish, a common sight was to see hundreds of punters crawling on the ground looking for their old slips following an amended result.”

Although all the images were taken in the same location, and possibly on the same occasion, stamps include addresses in London; Clarence St, Sydney, and Lapstone, NSW.
