    The date on this photo and 122_033 is incorrect. It would have been taken sometime between 1934-1936 inclusive - not 1933.

    This is because the player at the front 2nd from right is FRANK L(EONARD) DAVIES, recruited from the North City club in Ballarat. Frank L played 30 senior games and kicked 15 goals over 1934-36.

    Frank L should not be confused with Frank A Davies, from the City club in Launceston, who coincidentally played 7 games with South in the previous premiership year 1933, kicking 3 goals.

    I happen to know this because Frank L was my uncle. Middle row 3rd left is Terry Brain. Will try to pinpoint the correct year and let you know further if I have any luck. I'm wondering if it was taken at the old Junction Oval with the Blackie Ironmonger stand in the background ?

    I think Reg Humphries is second from the right in the back row, there is a photo of him in the Bloodstained Angels book. Roy Moore is probably on the far right on the bottom row, both he and Reg Humphries are in a 1938 team photo in Jim Main's book.

    I am guessing, but 'Bluey' Richards may be 3rd from the left in the back row and Jim Reid 2nd from the left in the front row. There are photos of both of them in the Bloodstained Angels book, but it is hard to be 100% certain.

      Correction to my previous comment, the player in the front row between Jock McKenzie and Frank Davies appears in the 1936 Seconds team photo. Therefore, it is more likely to be Laurie Leask, who played a number of Seconds games that year.

    My uncle, Lin("Blue")Richards is the player third from the left in the back row.
    He was my mother's brother. He was born on Kalgoorlie /Boulder. He played for East Fremantle, winning the Sandover Medal for fairest and Best in the WAFL. He played in winning Grand Finals with East Fremantle prior to transferring to South Melbourne. I believe he played in 7 successive grand finals during his football career in Perth and Melbourne. Perhaps a unique football history.
    He ran a sports Shop in Broken Hill after he retired from Football.

    1936 Photo South Melbourne Senior Football team - the player 3rd from the left in the back row is Lin Richards.
    Lin was my mother's brother. He started his football career in Boulder/ Kalgoorlie.
    Then with East Fremantle wining the Sandover Medal for fairest and Best in the WAFL competition and played inwinning Grand Finals. Then with South Melbourne and again playing in Grand Finals. Not winning ones though.
    I believe he played in 7 successive Grand Finals which must be some sort of record i would think.
    He retired from football to run a Sports Shop in Broken Hill.
