In 1992 State Library of NSW staff photographer Ellen Comiskey* visited the Rugby League Knockout at Henson Park in Marrickville, Sydney. The Knockout is one of the largest sporting events for Aboriginal communities from across NSW. It is held every October long weekend.
Ellen was more interested in the supporters than the players. This is a small selection of her photos from 1992. Recognise anyone?
*Sadly Ellen passed away in 1997.
