South Melbourne full-back ‘Gentleman Jim’ Jim Cleary photographed at South Melbourne’s Lake Oval in the late forties. Cleary finished at South in 1948 so this photo could not be dated later than that. Cleary played 222 games for South from 1934-48 and won the club’s best and fairest award in 1942 and 1944. He later coached Port Melbourne and Brunswick in the VFA, and spent time as a popular commentator on Channel 7’s ‘World of Sport’ program.
