SLV Accession no. H2008.122/86

Team: Collingwood (VFL)
Location: Victoria Park (Abbotsford)
Date: circa late forties

People: Charlie Utting


The player is Collingwood centreman Charlie Utting photographed at Victoria Park in the late forties. Utting, a nuggety and feisty footballer who made life very difficult for his opponents, played 125 games for the Magpies 1943-50. For his biography, see Michael Roberts, A Century of the Best - the Stories of Collingwood’s Favourite Sons, Collingwood Football Club, 1991, pp. 397-400. An almost identical but clearer photo of Utting, taken almost in the exact same position - presumably in the same photo shoot - is featured on page 397 of the book.
