A group of men sitting around a table at a Heniz Soup sales convention held in the St Kilda Town Hall. As it is being held in 1956, the conference theme has been linked to the Olympic Games, which was held in Melbourne in November of that year.

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.
