There are no colour photographs or colour slides made by Charles Boyles in his lifetime. For modern viewers, whose phones can readily take colour photos and video film, it can perhaps be difficult to view a work one can only see in black and white.

Advertising from the VFL Football Record 1941-43

Author: Michael Riley - Published At: 2012-09-13 23:23 - (2007 Reads)
The State Library of Victoria's digitized version of the VFL Football Record is a useful primary source for football research. The Football Record was sold at grounds on match day. During the Second World War, football continued and so did the record. The record included less advertising during the war years than at other times. There were many appears to support the war effort by attending charity events, or purchasing war bonds.

The selection of advertisements that appear here is not exhaustive and is a selection of the 'most interesting' advertisements during the 1941 to 1943 period. The advertisements provide a small insight into wartime Melbourne.

The State Library of Victoria's digitized version of the VFL Football Record is a useful primary source for football research.

As I searched the Football Record for other purposes, the advertisements kept catching my eye. After a while I began to collect them. Below I have reproduced the most interesting advertisements of the 1929-32 period. Many of the advertisements in the Football Record incorporated a football theme, and I hope you find them of similar interest.
