A photographic print of Peter Reville kicking downfield at training. Reville, a South Melbourne ruckman of the 1930’s, played 156 games and kicked 207 goals for the Swans 1925-1934 and was a member of the 1933 premiership team. This particular photo has been reproduced in Jim Main’s publication Honour the Names, p. 201. There are some well-known photos of him chain-smoking during three-quarter time breaks. Reville also played for Coburg in the thirties, and concluded his career with 22 games for Fitzroy 1938-39.

Further Work Needed

A smooth action shot. This is more than unusual for Boyles. There are very few action shots in the collection and they are either very stiff or perfect. This photo may be a photo of someone else's work
