Very definitely North Melbourne’s (VFL) 1949 Senior Team photographed at Arden Street in front of the players’ race. Grandstand packed. North Melbourne finished third in 1949. They played in the second semi-final and then the preliminary final, losing both. They had finished on top of the VFL ladder after the first round of home and away games.

Somewhat blurred. Players appear to be wearing black armbands.

Emulsion damage obscures McCorkell in one of the versions of this image.

Further Work Needed
