South Melbourne’s 1957 Fourths premiership team photographed in front of the main grandstand at the Lake Oval. Former South Melbourne centre man Keith Schaefer (1947-53) is in the centre of the group. Schaefer left the Swans in 1953 to coach at Deniliquin. He returned in 1957 and coached South Melbourne Fourths to a premiership. He later helped John Heriot coach South’s Thirds team. See Jim Main, Honour the Names, p. 235. Good clear photo.
