This is a Carlton (VFL) Senior Team of 1949 photographed at Princes Park in front of grandstand. Excellent, very clear photo, and a particularly clear view of the spectators in the grandstand. Captain Ern Henfry sits in the centre of the group.

Carlton in 1949 were runners-up to Essendon. Black shorts.

This match must be round 6 21-May-1949 against Geelong at Princes Park
Carlton 18 13 (121)
Geelong 12 10 (82)

Jim Baird is not in the photo and he only missed one game for the season...Round 6
All other players match round 6

The player that looks like Doug Williams/Frank Bateman must be Doug Williams as Williams played in Round 6 abd Bateman did not.
