More than 6000 people brought traffic to a stand still in Swanston Street when the champion and his manager, Jack Rennie, arrived for a civic reception. This photo shows Rose with members of his family around him, waving at the crowd. At first he appeared a little overawed, but soon was obviously enjoying it. "I didn't think so many people cared." 29-02-1968.
