A number of names identified from a copy of the photo at the Carlton ‘Bluesum’

Wiki – "Jim Francis ... was appointed coach of the Blues from 1956-1958. Under his tenure the Blues struggled despite having a good side on paper and Francis was sacked in 1958. Francis was bitter about the firing and never spoke to his former close friend and Carlton coaching successor Ken Hands again."
