Hats off to early local footballers
THE photograph of the Kyabram Football Team was taken in the early 1900s by a local photographer at the time – Mr J T Walker, Kyabram.
The names in the photograph are written in pencil around the cardboard edge with lines drawn from the name to the person – hence lines drawn on a few faces in the photo.
This is not something we would do now, but I am very grateful to have the names of those in the group.
Please note that I am only going on the names written on the photograph.
