Samuel John Hood (b.20-Aug-1872 d.8-Jun-1953)



Introduction

Hood opened his first Studio in 1899 doing wedding and portrait photography and later took over Dalny Studios at 124 Pitt Street, transforming over time into a press photographer.

Sam's daughter, Gladys Hood, donated some 30,000 images and negatives to the State Library of NSW in 1973. Information about Sam Hood and examples of his photographs are widely available.

The NSW State Library includes a number of Hoods photos from the 1933 Australian National Football Council Interstate Carnival in Sydney.

Don Bradman was an Australian Cricketer relatively popular in the 1930s (well ok... maybe a bit more famous than that). On 18 November 1932, just a week after this photo appeared in the paper, the England team employed a new tactic against an Australian XI, bowling at the body and packing the leg side with fielders. This Bodyline tactic was designed to defeat Bradman and make the 1932-33 tour one of the most famous in Cricket history.
