Fred Hardwick.

IMG_20160524_0001Reprinted from an article that appeared in the 1977 edition of Topical Points.
The rather good looking fellow above is Fred Hardwick (a long time ago).
Fred who at present is a clicker (leading hand) in the Jobbing Room will retire on 19th April, 1977, after 49 years, 10 months with the Government Printing Office.
Fred started in 1927 as a post boy and began his apprenticeship in 1928.
He was appointed as a clicker in 1950.
Photo: Fred is remembered at Prospect Oval (as are many other Roosters players) as part of the picket fence surrounding the oval.
Thanks to Alex Riley for the pic (2020).
Between 1929 and 1935 Fred played football for North Adelaide in the South Australian Football League.
After his retirement Fred hopes to continue playing golf, bowls and keep up his interest in the horses.
