Jackie Howe singlet for sale
Howe was born at Killarney near Warwick, Queensland.
He shot to fame in pre-Federation Australia in 1892 when he broke the daily and weekly shearing records across the colonies. On 10 October 1892, Howe shore 321 sheep in seven hours and 40 minutes at Alice Downs station, near Blackall, Queensland. In the week beforehand, Howe also set the weekly record, shearing 1,437 sheep in 44 hours and 30 minutes.
Howe's daily record was beaten by Ted Reick in 1950, but Reick was using machine shears, while Howe's hand shears were little more than scissors.
Howe's weekly record stands unbeaten as of 2005. Howe was active during the shearer strikes of the 1891 and 1894, and was a committed trade unionist.
Jackie Howe was the subject of a book, Jack Howe: The Manitoba and the Legend, by Barry Muir, and a bronze statue, on display in Blackall. Jackie Howe's father, Jack Howe, was also a famous sheep shearer.
Jackie Howe owned a public, The Barcoo Hotel, in Blackall, Queensland.
There is now a statue there of him holding a sheep. Jackie Howe became the name given to navy blue singlet tops. According to legend, this is what Jackie was wearing on the day he broke the shearing record.
