Name/TitlePhotograph: Madie Coldham and Billie Fulford
About this objectThis is a photo of Madie Coldham and Billie Fulford. The pair appear to be walking onto the field as batting partners. According to cricket records the two never played with each other, Madie only ever recorded as playing for Auckland and Billie recorded as playing for Wellington and New Zealand. They played each other once for a Hally-Burton Johnson Wellington v Auckland match held at Kilbirnie Park, January 21, 1947.
It is thought that there may have been an undocumented, unofficial New Zealand Women's tour of Australia in the late 1940s or early 1950s. This is photograph may have come from this tour as both Coldham and Fulford were at the height of their game in the late 1940s.
