Design For New Scoreboard, Sydney Cricket Ground


Sydney Cricket & Sports Grounds

Sydney Cricket & Sports Grounds
Moore Park, Australia

The second scoreboard at the Sydney Cricket Ground was erected in April 1905. Moved the southern edge of the ground (The Hill), the renovated 1896 scoreboard consisted of only minor updates to Ned Gregory's original design. Featuring a more ornate facade and improvements in delivering greater statistics for events, the scoreboard was a feature point during night time cycling meets where it was illuminated by gas powered electric lighting. In place for close to twenty years, the scoreboard was later removed and replaced in 1924 by the famous Robertson and Marks scoreboard which stood until 2007.
