Charles Boyles Collection SLV
Link to Photo at SLV Website
SLV Accession no. H2008.122/143

Team: Carlton (VFL)
Location: Princes Park, Carlton
Date: probably date from about 1945

People: Ron Savage


A Carlton player photographed at Princes Park. Almost certainly Ron Savage. Savage, a ruckman, played 111 games and kicked 95 goals for the Blues from 1938-45. He was a member of the 1945 premiership team but was caught up in the fisticuffs of the ‘Bloodbath’ Grand Final and received an eight-week suspension. If this is Savage, the photo would probably date from about 1945. The same player appears in a number of other Boyles photos: Photo 21 version 16, H2008.122/439 (extreme right of top row in 1945 team); Photo 21 version 2, H2008.122/156 (third player from left in top row of a late-thirties Carlton Seconds team); Photo 47 version 3, H2008.122/162 (fourth player from left in top row of a Carlton Seconds team from the late thirties).
