Significance
This photo was donated by a regular donor to the Langi Morgala Museum.Unfortunately its date of manufacture is not yet known, but local Warrak knowledge may yet supply this date. It is of local significance to Warrak because of its rarity and presumed early date. This significance is ameliorated because the date of manufacture is so far only assumed; but if the Warrak Cricket Club is still in existence, the provenance and date of the photo may be more firmly established by talking to current members. Further research is warranted: local history, published or unpublished, may give further information.
