This is the Carlton (VFL) Senior Team photographed at Princes Park photographed in front of Robert Heatley Stand.

TASK - Ken has to confirm Michael's identifications - Jack green is 2nd from right

Further Work Needed

My guess is Round 8. Assuming Johnson and Bullen are in the team and George Dougherty and Jim Francis are missing, this leaves only 2 viable home games.

Round: 8 Venue: Princes Park Date: Sat, 30-Jun-1934 2:45 PM Attendance: 20,000
Carlton 7.6.48 12.8.80 16.11.107 19.20.134
Melbourne 1.1.7 5.7.37 7.11.53 11.19.85

Players from round 8 not already identified are
  • Cashman, Jack
  • Cooper, Jack
  • Crisp, Mickey
  • Dunn, Keith
  • Huxtable, Eric
  • Kelly, Joe
  • Mackie, Gordon
  • Ogden, Terry

In 1934 Brunswick sold some of its best players to Carlton so that it could continue to survive.
