Held on the January long weekend every year (now called Australia Day). The guy with short hair holding up a big jewie was R. "Bob" Taylor (donor of The Taylor Shield which still exists today).

Bob had a plumbing business and later retired to his Currarong NSW holiday house. Also at the weigh-in is demure John Gillies (aka 'The Little King').
