[Presants, Philip Robert], 1867-1942 :Young New Zealand at play; cricket in a mining town. [Christchurch, Weekly Press, 28 October, 1899].

Reference Number: C-079-054

Shows a group of 7 boys playing cricket on a country road. One boy stands watching in flax at right, while a girl walks away in the distance. The wickets are substituted by an old bent tin.The following information was supplied by Mr L.J. Burdett, AT 13/14/1, 1 February 1995): The boy holding the bat, standing next to bowler is Thomas William Harrison Hill (1885-1972); the bowler is Jack Barnett; the distant girl is Cecillia Liddle. Town may be Dobson or Brunnerton (conflicting information in letters AT 13/14/1, 8 October 1987, from Judy Siers, derived from information from the artist's daughter Myrtle Presants; and 1 February 1995, from Mr L.J. Burdett). However it is almost certainly Dobson. Judy Siers also writes that "the attached print ... originally appeared in the Christchurch Weekly Press 28 October 1899". It is likely that the print was issued as a supplement to the paper, as it does not appear within its pages.
