[Adelaide], Krischock Photo. 1932.
A gelatin silver photograph (220 × 296 mm), on the original captioned mount (external dimensions 358 × 455 mm).
The photograph is scuffed and scratched, with minor surface loss, with a small puncture to the centre, and slight loss along the top edge; the mount is a little stained and damaged with some loss to the corners (with loss of a few words to the caption - but not the names of any subjects - at the bottom left-hand corner); overall, in reasonable condition, now loosely backed up with stiff card in a custom-made Mylar sleeve.
Between Sturt's first premiership in 1915, and their epic clean-sweep from 1966 to 1970, the club had success only in 1926, 1932 and 1940. This premiership side included William Keith Dunn, who 'overcame a slow start to his league career with Sturt to develop into an excellent ruckman. Between 1927 and 1933 he played a total of 74 senior games, and represented his state three times. He rounded off his career with the Double Blues in style, winning both the Magarey Medal and his club's best and fairest award. In 1934 he was recruited by Carlton, where he impressed with his versatility and durability, being used alternatively as a second ruckman, back pocket, and decoy forward to Soapy Vallence. He retired in 1937 after 38 VFL games for the Blues'. This item is offered with a vintage photograph of the 'Sturt Football Club. Runners Up Season 1931. Matches Played 19. Won 15. Lost 4. Points For, 1727 points. Points Against, 1427 points', similar in format and presentation, but in poor condition. [2 items].
