Comment

A curious photo. Very doubtful this is Essendon (VFL) and certainly not Essendon First Eighteen. Not the Essendon grandstand. The grandstand looks like Richmond’s (the Chessell Stand). The sash on the jumper is too light for Essendon. Looks like Richmond jumper. The presence of an Air Force hat in the crowd may be a clue this is a Services team, or possibly a war-time Richmond Seconds team. One player seen here is also in 122_234 - third from right in back row in both photos. Circa 1942. Black shorts. Note the sizable crowd and time on clock: 4.50 pm.
