Back in July 2009, I ran something of a nostalgia story on my personal blog, Memories of Jimmy Sharman's Boxing Stadium. In response, kellso100 has just written:
Hi am looking for photos of sharmans troup in the late 40's and early 50's as my dad fought for him he fought under the name curly ryan before sparing for dave sands until daves unfortunate death.When I got the comment, I did something of a web search on Jimmy Sharman photos and on Curly Ryan, but found very little.
Can you help kellso100? There must be some photos around.

If you search "dave sands" on PictureAustralia there is a set of photos from Newcastle Region Library of Dave Sands sparing with someone in a training session in 1950. You never know - could be Curly Ryan ...
I did as suggested and found the photos that pellethepoet referred to. My thanks.
Maybe the photos will help kellso100.
