James ("Jimmy") Sharman senior born 20 June 1887 and died 18 November 1965, and James "Jimmy" Sharman junior born 1912 and died 24 April 2006, were father and son Australian boxing troupe impresarios.
Born in Narellan NSW, Jimmy Sharman Sr had established a boxing tent in 1911 at Ardlethan near Temora. The tent visited 45 to 50 shows each year. His son, Jimmy Sharman Jr, took over the business in 1955. The tent formed part of the Australian Show landscape until 1971, when regulations barred boxers fighting more than once a week. Sharman then turned to dodgem cars in partnership with Reg Grundy.
Sharman junior was born in Narranderra, NSW. He attended his first Sydney Royal Easter Show in 1926 working in his father's tent. Sharman junior played rugby league for Western Suburbs Magpies. He was fullback in Western Suburbs' 1934 premiership win against the Eastern Suburbs. In 1938 he became First Grade captain. He retired after 7 seasons in 1939 to become a journalist, taking over the boxing tent from his father in 1955. Sharman played 45 games between 1935 and 1939, scored 12 tries and kicked 11 goals. He was awarded life membership in 1998.
Paleface Adios had 240 starts, for 108 wins (second to Cane Smoke for the all time most wins in a lifetime [bred in Australia]), 43 seconds and 25 thirds over his career for more than $500,000 in prize money.
Paleface Adios died in Temora, on 11 December 1989. It is believed that this was a result of a snake bite but this was never confirmed. He is commemorated by a life-sized monument in Hoskins Street, Temora.
The Shire of Temora offers all the benefits of country living with a comprehensive range of quality affordable services.
Temora is situated approximately 80 km north of Wagga Wagga in the South West (Riverina) of New South Wales. Canberra is two hours drive to the east, with Griffith a 1.5 hour drive to the west.
Temora has a huge advantage as it is centrally located between the cities of Sydney and Melbourne, as well as being situated within South West Slopes/Riverina area, making it an ideal base from which to visit the region.
Temora Shire includes the town of Temora, and villages of Ariah Park and Springdale, but outreaches to other small communities outside the Shire boundary. With a strong retail trade sector and an active business community, many visitors are surprised at the variety of shopping within the town.
