A South Melbourne (VFL) Third Eighteen photographed at the Lake Oval 1949. Jim Taylor is in the back row, second player from right. Taylor was to play 153 senior games for the Swans (1949-54, 1956-61) and won the club’s best and fairest in 1953 and 1957. Taylor progressed from South Fourths to the senior side in the space of one year - 1949 - so this photo was probably taken in 1949.

Cannot identify coach.

No spectators. Twenty players. Black shorts.
