Similar group as one seen in 122_239 - Carlton Seconds, circa mid-late thirties V2. This is a Carlton (VFL) Seconds team from the mid-late thirties photographed at Princes Park.

The third player from the right in the top row is Harry Hollingshead. Hollingshead, playing in the ruck, was a member of Carlton’s 1938 senior VFL premiership team. He played 31 senior games for the Blues (1936, 1938-40). The third player from the left in top row appears to be the same as the one lining up the place-kick in Photo 42 (H2008.122/166). The player third from the left in the front row appears in several other Boyles images of Carlton Seconds teams from this period, as does the gentleman standing at the extreme left of the top row.

Nineteen players. A few spectators. White shorts.
