Blantyre Vics, 1910s

Despite the quality of this photo, it’s a cracker and very much Blantyre related. This previously unseen photo online is of Blantyre Victoria Football Club (Blantyre Vics). The year is unknown but thought to be in the 1910’s.  Daniel Sprott, is seated in the second row, second from the right.  

A relative Penny Roberston, who lives in Australia told me, “I know that he won several gold medals playing with the team and was fortunately able to sell them during the Depression to keep the family going.”

Given these are Blantyre men, I’ve zoomed in on the picture for a better look.
