Hi folks

Recently I came across and old photo of my then 18yo grandfather, playing for Beaconsfield JFL dated 1921… I’m simply curious which team absorbed them.. apparently they were located near Albert park, but I really have no idea. I’m not suggesting he was anymore than a young bloke having a kick.

kind regards

grant

Beaconsfield Hotel closed in St Kilda several years ago. Could possibly have a link with the South Melbourne and surrounding area. Wearing South Melbourne jumpers and no doubt be of the district clubs linked to the bloods. Reckon the swans will be winning this year's AFL flag.

Blundstones64, I had a quick look on Trove and could find no reference to a Beaconsfield team in the South Melbourne area in that era - the lads in the photo look fairly young, could it have been a school team?
