Game Review

At the end of this round Carlton were in 1st spot on the ladder with a percentage of 218.6.

First quarter action on the Blues' forward line. Carlton players L - R: Keith Shea, Harry Vallence and Bert Butler
South players, Austin Robertson Snr, Bill Faul and Jack Austin with the ball.
Good shot of the old score board and quarter clock. The letters on the scoreboard to our right, correspond to letters on a page in the Football Record.
The end of quarter scores from the five other VFL games were displayed and updated.
The ornate white building on Garton Street, to the left of the scoreboard is still standing eighty years on.
