Classic VFL scoreboards
Michael Riley of Boyles Football Photos, has sent through some terrific shots from a National Film and Sound Archive documentary called VFL On Film: 1909-1945 – Marking Time Volume 1.
We were excited by the scoreboards….
Many thanks to Michael Riley of Boyles Football Photos for these wonderful images. I especially liked the 1911 photo, where – as explained in the documentary, the boundary umpire is raising a handkerchief to indicate the ball is out of bounds.
The Essendon v Geelong photo is actually the East Melbourne Cricket Ground.
Thanks Simon. Much appreciated. Have made the correction.
Fantastic footage-much appreciated! An important part of our history and culture
