On June 6, 1938, the 3rd annual Hockey Ball, arranged by the Brisbane Women’s Hockey Association and the Brisbane Hockey Association was held at the Trocadero in South Brisbane.
Each club decorated their selected alcove of the ballroom. The Neptune Ladies’ Club went with the theme “Neptune’s Cave”, decorating their alcove with seaweed and shells. A prize for the best decorated alcove was eventually awarded to the Y.M.C.A. for their rainbow coloured effort.
A brief account of the Hockey Ball can be found in The Courier-Mail.
These two photographs of attendees posing for photographs at the Hockey Ball are part of our collection.
