Further Work Needed

This photo is identified as 1946 team by the Blueseum website, athough their version is photographed from a slightly different position and the players face direct to camera. Initially it was suspected that two photographers were working at the same session, but the same photo from a different angle can be found in the NSM collection of Boyles photos.

A match by match analysis of the season identifies this photo as from Round 11, 1946 - Date: Sat, 06-Jul-1946, vs Essendon. Essendon (64) defeated Carlton (63) by 21 points.


20 players in photo, 18 identified. Missing players should be:

The Blueseum has an unsourced photo from the same session, but from front on. The players appear to be looking at various cameras at the same time, rather than one photographer who has moved positions, leading to the assumption that this photo was taken by a different photographer.
