Inscriptions: Inscribed - "Boom in cricket has been noticed since the visit of the 'Aussie' team last season and every sports ground has its group of boys ready for a game at any time. This group of boys all set to go seem to have even a young umpire in the making. At any rate the lad on the right looks as if he is prepared to uphold any decision he makes if necessary by force of arms" [from back of original print] - transcribed from back of file print
