A crowd of spectators watching a men's basketball game between the Formosa China (Taiwan) and the Australian teams at the Royal Exhibition Building, as part of the Olympics Games held in Melbourne in 1956. An Omega time keeping clock is visible behind the goal.

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.
