Charles Boyles Collection SLV

Link to Photo at SLV Website
SLV Accession no. H2008.122/237

Team: Unknown

Location: Brunswick Oval


Photo taken at Brunswick (VFA) Oval. Bad emulsion damage on left side of image obscures at least one player. Apparently only seventeen players. Jumpers are Richmond/Essendon style but not uniform. Three of the seventeen wearing white shorts - the rest black shorts. The player fourth from the right in top row strongly resembles St. Kilda player Colin Williamson. Probably not a VFL team. Possibly VFA (Coburg?). More likely a Services team or a workplace-based team. The players seem relatively old. Circa late 1930’s or early 1940’s.
