    Description:

    Rare original photograph of the St. Augustine's "A" Football team, premiers for 1927 in the United Church Football Association which was a football competition based in the suburbs of Adelaide from 1906 to 1977.

    The competition was formed in April 1906 when delegates of some football clubs connected to churches in Adelaide met to establish a church association. The initial six clubs were Clayton Congregational, East Adelaide Methodist, Stanley Street Congregational, St Giles' Presbyterian, St Luke's Church of England, and St Mark's Church of England.

    The Stanley Shield was awarded to the champion team of the association from 1913. The shield was presented to the winner of a playoff between the A1 and A2 premiers. It was named after the Stanley Street team (later Thompson Memorial), which won three premierships in a row from 1910 to 1912.

    Description:

    Engraving of the attempted Channel swim by W. Cavil who was Richmond Theophilus (Dick) Cavill (1884–1938). Cavill migrated to Australia, reaching Melbourne with his family in the Somersetshire in February 1879. He soon moved to Sydney and set up as a 'professor of swimming'. 

    In July 1876 Cavill swam over twenty miles from London Bridge to Greenhithe, the longest distance to that time on the Thames. Next month he swam from Southampton to Southsea Pier and from Dover to Ramsgate, before attempting to swim the English Channel. He was taken from the water three miles from his destination, but achieved considerable fame. Having a 'robust constitution, broad chest, and great muscular power', he tried again next year but was dragged from the water within 220 yards of the English coast. Although the 'success' of the swim was heatedly challenged, it was recognized by the Serpentine Club.
