The Big Book of Sports - 1956

Bit of a mystery this but interesting nonetheless. It's the "Big Book of Sports", a 78 page annual published in 1956, somewhere between the Olympic equestrian events held in Sweden that year and the main event in Melbourne later in the year. It covers a wide range of sports and has a mixture of black and white and those spooky coloured black and white prints. Odd, especially as some of the prints are quite familiar in their original form. In pretty good condition with only minimal wear although the dust cover is a bit torn and stained.
