Messrs. Albert & Sons of Sydney provide 43 pounds for cash prizes and gold and silver medals for a Boomerang Mouth organ contest. Despite opinions that the contest is not in keeping with South Street standards, 77 entries are received and the Coliseum is packed to the doors, with winner Percival Spouse of Sydney, described as ‘outstanding.’

The contests were held until 1931 when mouth organ bands came into vogue and took centre stage until 1940.
