The Sporting Globe - Photography 1939

Commercial Work
These are not photos by Charles Boyles

The Sporting Globe featured many sports, but most front pages and stories relate to horse racing.

The 1939 Sportiing Globe was released twice weekly , on Wednesday and Saturday and it appears that there were two issues each day. There is some variation between the two issues each day and unfortunately I did not record which version of each day's paper that the photos are from.

Many photos were reused and I have tried to eliminate duplicates. The photos have also been enhanced with the background changed to greyscale and auto-highlighting applied to bring out the black which otherwise had faded.

The State Library of Victoria has the Sporting Globe available on microfilm but I was able to access the original papers in the Heritage Reading Room. The originals are quite delicate and it took considerable time to slowly go through the volumes without damaging the pages. I must admit that I have missed a number of photos from July 1939 because the pages were damaged and I was unwilling to cause any further damage.
