A South Melbourne (VFL) Seconds team circa 1947-48. Appears to have been photographed at the Brunswick Street (Fitzroy) Oval but the players are all wearing black shorts.

Players recognised are Pat Bourke (first player on left of top row), Jack Garrick (extreme right of top row), Arthur Fox (first player on left of middle row). The fifth player from the right in top row is possibly Wiley Chambers.
Fox and Garrick both played their first senior games for South in 1948. Small number of spectators. St. John’s Ambulance member in group. Twenty players - therefore post-1946.
