Comment

This photo was taken at Princess Park probably before the start of the 1943 Grand Final. In a tight game Richmond would come take a 5 point deficit into the final quarter but turn that around to win by 5 points against a determined Essendon team.

Further Work Needed

The magazine from the 1950's entitled 'Footy and the Clubs that Made it' was produced by the Argus and I assume used photos from the Argus photo library. Their version of the 1943 Grand Final is taken from a slightly different angle. The angle is easiest to see when focusing on Leo Merrett in the front row.
