About this object
A colour photograph of Mataura Cricket Club members (committee?) gathered to celebrate the club's centenary, posing in front of the clubhouse. The club was formed in 1886, and only World War Two interrupted play. The book 'Mataura: City of the Falls' (pgs. 357-60) has details of history, outstanding players, and the metamorphosis of the pitch. The club boasted both men's and a women's teams.

We would love to be able to identify the people in this picture.
