This photo is quite probably the oldest photo in the State Library's collection of Boyles football photos. It was taken at the Carlton-Collingwood game at Princes Park on June 2,1928. Collingwood (87) defeated Carlton (84) by three points. The Magpies went on to top the home-and-away ladder and win the premiership. Carlton, beaten by Richmond in the first semi-final

Further Work Needed

This photo appeared in the 1928 Weekly Times series of Football Team photos.

Damien Green supplied a final team list from his copy of the Weekly Times Photo.

According to the Blueseum website, the Carlton Jumper was changed in 1927. Maurie Connell is wearing the old style jumper in this photo.

Maybe the Weekly Times connection was the reason Boyles began taking football photos.
Need to check original photo
