Rupertswood

 

 

Photos Clint Anderson – Besides being famous for the birthplace of the ashes, Rupertswood was also where the very first greyhound coursing was conducted in this country (W. Clarke had imported greyhounds to conduct the Waterloo cup in 1874)

 

Trevor Whitford added – My grandfather in the 1890s with his coursing greyhound in front of his bookmakers shop in Alberton Victoria (you can see why it’s in my blood lol)
