This is a Carlton (VFL) Senior Team photographed before a home match at Princes Park. Almost certainly a 1950 Carlton team. The players are not easily recognised due to very bad blurring. Grandstand packed. Black shorts.

Further Work Needed

Mills and Comben both started their senior careers in 1950. Baxter, Garby and Streeter concluded theirs in 1950.

Round: 4 Princes Park 13-May-1950

Ken Aitken played only three matches in 1950 quickly eliminating most games in the season from being options. Futher checking quickly identifies this photo as round 4.
