A radio broadcaster interviewing General Bridgeford about the 1956 Melbourne Olympic Games Torch Relay journey down the east coast of Australia. A map detailing the route is in the background. Bridgeford was the CEO of the Olympic Organising Committee.

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.
