SummaryThree newspaper articles and a photograph, source unknown, on the first Test Match, Australia v. South Africa, played at the Brisbane Cricket Ground, 27 and 28 November, 2 and 3 1931. The articles are mainly about the record crowds that came to the match, with one of the articles describing the unruly behaviour of the crowd. The photograph is of Bradman finishing a hook shot. With the runs made from this shot, he passed Victor Trumper's record of 214 which was till then the highest score for a Test batsman in a home Test Match.
