A former Westralian
interstate player
Richards is defending
grandly for South Mel-
bourne. He is the
model of consistency,
and his clearing dashes
are effective.

I have scanned some of my father's collection of old South Melbourne Football cards from the 1930's. This is number one in Hoadley's Series of 100 League Footballers.
(Apparently Hoadley's Chocolates were based in Barrackville, Melbourne)
Each carries a cryptic Safety Council Warning, like Don't play on Railway Lines or Any Wire May Be a Live Wire.

A Classic Spring Day today when one has to watch for cricketers emerging from hibernation in the parks, but the glow of football victory has not quite disappeared...

Richards (for South Melb) would display an
es em dash...

an ability to suddenly break out into parathentical play.

Too stupid to learn how to do trackback...

I think ubersp...trackback was disabled after a spam blitz, Helen...

My own trackback would be: I'm honoured to be cited in such a great cast-iron post. Hope everyone springs over to the balcony...
