The Bradmans' Honeymoon
Their honeymoon was unusual with Jessie accompanying her husband and several other cricket players on a tour, ogranised by former Test player Arthur Mailey, to the United States and Canada. The tour lasted from May - September 1932 and games were played in Vancouver, Cowichan, Toronto, Guelph, Montreal, New York, Windsor, Chicago, Winnipeg, Moose Jaw, Regina, Yorkton, Saskatoon, Edmonton, Calgary, San Francisco, Santa Barbara and Hollywood (in that order). While in New York Don Bradman met the legendary baseballer ‘Babe’ Ruth.
The team had seven members with Test experience, Alan Kippax, Stan McCabe, L. O. ‘Chuck’ Fleetwood-Smith, Hanson Carter, Don Bradman, Athur Mailey & Vic Richardson, the rest being cricket enthusiasts. During the tour Bradman made many big scores including a North American record of 260 runs verses Western Ontario on 4th July.
