A `Welcome to Kilmore' sign and Repco billboard situated in a field. Kilmore was one of the towns visited by the Repco Olympic 7-Day Tour, one of the events organised to commemorate the Olympic Games held in Melbourne in 1956.

This image is part of the Laurie Richards Collection at Museum Victoria comprising approximately 85,000 negatives taken by the Melbourne based Laurie Richards Studio between the 1950s -1970s. These negatives are all mostly large format [5"x 4"/ 12.5 x 10 cm], black and white images, though a significant number are in colour. The many photographic jobs that were undertaken in the course of thirty years are itemised in a set of log books, copies of which are also held by Museum Victoria.
