A suite of photographs from from the late 1950's donated by John Booth OSC1957 featuring students taking part in sporting events at the College. The main themes focus on Athletics, Cadet Officers and N.C.O.'s, Football Team First Eighteen XVIII and The Adelaide Football Tour, Boarders Librarians, Cricket Team Eleven XI, Prefects and Rowing Crew Four IV's.
The nostalgic imagery was taken in the 1950's and hand printed in a lab, with most images donated in excellent condition featuring great depth in detail due to the hand printed nature of the photographs.
The photograph is featured in the 1957 Reporter edition which also includes Day-boy librarians page 23.
LIBRARY NOTES (1957 Reporter edition page 20)
This year proved to be another successful one for the library. This was mainly due to the co-operation and support of the Library Committee, plus the hard work put in by last year's members in establishing the new library.
The library welcomed the addition of many new books for all sections, especially the Novel, Travel, Art and Reserve sections for examination students. Thanks must be given to the Prefects for the pur- chase of a new magazine shelf and the many Old Boys and friends of the school who donated books.
Among those who donated books to the new library are Mr. and Mrs. lneson, Mrs. Clairs, Mr. Hendry, Mr. Brisbane, Brice and Peter Butterworth, John Black, Ross Haig, Mr. McKay's family, M. Hodgkin, D. Nairn and W. Watson.
George Gooch, on two quick visits back to civilisation, gave generous donations for the purchase of books, but as he expected these gifts to remain anonymous, there wiII probably be some queer and frantic smoke signals from the direction of the interior of the continent. Fortunately, he is a safe distance away (and short of camels) so we record our appreciation of his gifts.
As we go to press we must record a most generous gift by Mr. Gordon Gooch which will enable a very substantial purchase of books and the acquiring of the new and valuable Australian EncycIopcedia, of ten volumes, to be published early next year. This jubilee gift will be one long-treasured by the library, and we are once again indebted to the thoughtfulness and generosity of Mr. Gordon Gooch.
