1929 Weekly Times Team Photos Series

Commercial Work

Photos by Ken Mansell

The Weekly Times newspaper sold to a predominantly Rural audience. It is because of this that the featured teams includes a range of country teams, rather than VFA or city based teams Industrial Teams such as Dunlop Tyres, Victoria Brewery, Police & Fire Department Teams or Railways teams.




The Boyles Connection

Two articles on the website combine to discuss the Boyles connection. The first article identifies team photos in the Weekly Times (1928-29) and Australasian (1929) as the source of stock images for numerous sets of football cards. The second, focuses on Charles Boyles relationship to the source team photos. See:

VFL

Collingwood dominated the VFL in 1929. In all they lost only one game, and that was in a finals match.
Gordon Coventry kicked 100 goals in a season, the first time this feat was achieved.

VFA

Northcote (VFA) topped the VFA ladder at the end of the Home and Away series, but by a superior percentage, over Port Melbourne (VFA). The two ladder leaders then dispatched Preston (VFA) and Brunswick (VFA) in the Semi-finals.

Northcote earned the Premiership the hard way. The Final ended in a Draw with both teams scoring 55 points. A replay produced another close game but with Port Melbourne scraping home by 4 points. This result caused a Grand Final to be played where Northcote 15 21 (111) ran over Port Melbourne 10 9 (69) by 42 points. See http://www.thegapchessclub.org.au/vfa/1929.htm

The VFL photos were published 1-2 weeks after the photo was taken. The VFA photos probably follow a similar pattern.
