    Description:

    The best colonial engraved image of an AFL game between Carlton and Melbourne at Albert Park from the original edition of the Australasian Sketcher 12th June, 1875. Rare.

     For the 1875 premiership seven metropolitan clubs participated in senior football during the season: Albert-park, Carlton, Carlton Imperial, East Melbourne, Melbourne North Melbourne and St Kilda cum University, a combined team from St Kilda and Melbourne University.  As had been the case for several years, Carlton and Melbourne were considered the dominant clubs in the city, so the premier club was decided based entirely on the head-to-head record between the clubs; in their four meetings, Carlton won three and Melbourne won one, so Carlton was recognised as the premier club for the season

     Description from publication:

    "We present our readers this month with an illustration of the most popular sport, perhaps, in Victoria namely football. The scene chosen by our artist is the Melbourne football ground and we may suppose ourselves looking on at a match being played between the chosen twenties of two crack clubs, tbe Carlton and Melbourne or Albert-park, these being supposed to be the three strongest in the colony, and, indeed, the records of past matches played between them show that there is little to choose, as regards the skill and strength of the players, between the three clubs. Football vies with cricket in the popularity it has acquired and the eagerness with which it is pursued, and the number of clubs in existence. Ten thousand spectators have frequently been gathered together at a match on the Melbourne ground, at Carlton, or in the Albert-park..."

    Stock Number:
    ECTM 018 HOR (FLR)
    Description:

    Stunning large portrait of a Hackney horse. The lithographs were printed on textured paper to look like oil paintings.

    The Hackney Horse breed was developed in the C14th in Norfolk when the King of England required powerful but attractive horses with an excellent trot, to be used for general purpose riding horses. The trotting horses were more suitable as war horses than amblers with their pacing gaits. As a result, in 1542 King Henry VIII required his wealthy subjects keep a specified number of trotting horse stallions for breeding use.  In about 1729 a Norfolk Trotter stallion and an Arabian stallion contributed to the foundation stock for the modern Hackney Horse. The resulting Norfolk Roadster, as it was known, was a heavily built horse that was used as a work horse by farmers and others. It was also a fast horse with good stamina.

    Hambletonian, was one of the best thoroughbred racehorses of the late 18th century, having won all of his race starts, except one. His victories included, two Doncaster Cups in the late 1790's and the St. Leger Stakes at Doncaster in 1795. Hambletonian was a bay colt, bred by John Hutchinson and foaled in 1792. He was by the sire King Fergus and a grandson of the two undefeated horses, Eclipse and Highflyer who was the sire of his dam Grey Highflyer.
