This photo was taken at Ballarat’s City Oval, the inland city’s main sports arena. Appears to be the same (or a similar) group as the team shown in 122_207 - Probably Services team at Ballarat in Mixed Styles. The players are wearing the same two jumpers as the ones worn in 122_207 - Probably Services team at Ballarat in Mixed Styles - five of them appear to have Collingwood-type jumpers and thirteen have very wide stripes. At least one of the players is sporting a different jumper to the one worn in the other photo. To add to the strangeness, one player even wears a third style.

Probably a Ballarat team, and very probably a Services team from the 1942-43 era. (In Photo 70, military uniforms are conspicuous in the crowd).
