122_104 - Possibly Services team in South Melbourne Style

Charles Boyles Collection SLV

SLV Accession no. H2008.122/104

Team: Unknown
Date: Early 1940s



South Melbourne-style jumpers but this is probably not a South Melbourne (VFL) team at all. The photo was not taken at the Lake Oval - it is not the South grandstand. No South Melbourne players recognised. The team is definitely not South’s seniors. Several military uniforms seen in crowd. Possibly a Services team. Is this the Punt Road Oval (Richmond) grandstand? White shorts.

Further Work Needed

Probably at Hawthorn

Possibly a South Melbourne-District Team? No uniformed people standing with the team.

Note the photographer standing on the ground just behind the team.
