Hi,

William Anderson born 1865, Victoria, Australia, at my estimate would be about 19 years old in this photo but I'm not sure.  I don't know the team colour of his jumper so it's o.k. to be creative.

The sport was probably Australian rules football.  The photo wasn't an original, more like a photo of a photo, so the scan is not the best.   A clean up would be great, colour if anyone would like to have a go.   Thanks and Kind Regards,  Aussielass. :) :)

I went for a more creative version after cleaning up a bit - so darkened it out quite a bit compared to your original. But as a sports man i thought the style might suit him. I hope it is okay, but you will get a few variations from restorers to choose from.

Good quality size scans will mean much better restores >> hint hint :-)

Thanks jloy326, a terrific clean up, it looks fantastic, better than I could hope for, given the poor quality of the photo, you have worked wonders! :)

Thanks Pat, our local football team is blue and white, even though William was living in another state of Australia and I had no idea what his team colours were, I love your choice!!  It looks fantastic! :)

Thanks and Kind Regards, Aussielass  :) :)

I did some googling and found a Bill Anderson played for St Kilda during the years you think, but that isn't a St Kilda jumper.  Not even an old one!   ;)

There could well be other Bill Andersons around . . . . like the one who player for Rugby League.

Oh well . . . . .  I tried!    ;D ;D ;D

Hi Wiggy, thanks for trying, I don't think William played at a professional level,  ;D ;D, but if he did it was in Tassie, which is where he would have lived at the time the time the photo was taken.  You're right, there are lots of Bill Anderson's floating around!!   ;D ;D ;D ;) ;) ;)
