A vintage photograph of the 'Hummock Hill [Football Club]. Seas[on 1915]'

[Port Pirie], 'Geo. T. Row, Photo.', 1915.

A gelatin silver photograph (155 × 204 mm), on the original captioned mount (external dimensions now approximately 220 × 305 mm).

The photograph is a little scuffed and marked, with minor surface loss to silverfish to the edges, and some light stains in the bottom right-hand corner (these blemishes are well away from the image proper); some loss to the margins of the mount (removing half the title); overall, still a decent item.

+ A similar item from around the same vintage (the final number on the date written on the football in the image is indistinct - possibly 1913?): the uncredited photograph is a little scuffed, and the mount is a little marked and rubbed, but overall, in very good condition. + A smaller Hummock Hill team photograph from 1916: a gelatin silver photograph (approximately 108 × 152 mm on the original mount, external dimensions approximately 202 × 257 mm), with both the photograph and mount showings signs of use and age. 'Whyalla was founded as "Hummocks Hill", and was known by that name until 1916'; 'The Whyalla Football Association [now League] was formed in 1920 with founding clubs Central Whyalla, North Whyalla and South Whyalla, although competition has been noted to have occurred prior to this' (Wikipedia). These three rare photographs attest to that claim. [3 items].
