Formatted Abstract/Summary


The Sporting Image traces sport and recreation in Queensland from Aboriginal times to the 1920s through the images of more than two hundred photographs, drawings and cartoons from the era. It chronicles the influence of the squatters, the games of the workers, and the ways in which the Queensland climate and rural character created unusual sports and pastimes. The changing role of women, the growth of private schools with their emphasis on muscular Christianity and the story of ethnic sport are all depicted.
