Photo of people standing on bikes watching East Perth football

Postby twowheels » Wed Apr 25, 2018 11:25 am

Looking for some help to find a photo.
I recall seeing a photo when I was younger of men/boys who had leant their bikes against the Perth Oval fence and were standing on the top tubes/seats watching an East Perth game.
I saw the photo in a number of books/football annuals, it was quite a famous image.
Does anyone know where I could locate this photo, in particular a digital image?
Thanks

Maybe try this link as a starter by searching the WA newspaper photo archives.

Thx, I found that one, it is Fremantle Oval. Maybe age has wearied my memory. Possibly a reasonably common photo subject, my memory was jogged by a similar photo from Germany.
Still pretty sure it was Perth Oval, only about 5 or 6 in the photo I recall and think it might have been against a distinctive brick wall.
Did also find this cool photo of cnr William/Murray St though
