dc.description b&w photograph; postcard
dc.description Very good. Was attached to black matting, which left four small pieces on reverse. Right corners beginning to fray.
dc.description Photo of 11 boys and one priest on Sports Day of 21 October at the beautiful grounds of the Windsor Street campus. Five of the teenage boys (some wearing bi-coloured beanies with SMC "Saint Mary's College" on them) are on bikes about to start a gruelling 5 mile race, with one boy standing behind each cyclist, ready to give a push. The cyclist second from the right (white dress shirt, sleeves rolled up) is 1st Year Arts student Harry Durney, who placed in the 1- and 3-mile cycle races (and the mile walk!) but not this race (see pg. 120 of the 1922 Santamarian yearbook). Other cyclists are Bill Downie and Harry Smith. Another small boy stands off to the right, while Father Phelan (far right, see pg. 21 and 107) is about to give the signal to start. Slightly different photo of this same race is found on pg. 121 of the 1922 Santamarian yearbook.
