Boxing in Carlton (1920s)

Carlton Cafe moved to a new, larger building on Bubbling Well Road, at the edge of the Racecourse, in 1923. One of the regular events that entertained the public were the boxing matches. After a discussion here I found this cute photo in my stashes:

Sapajou's style is more elegant, but his colleague with the signature "L.T." (Nikolay Eltekoff, as friends clued me) is more expressive! China Press, 1928

One more cartoon is in the comments down below.
