Almanac supporter Marcus Spiller recently discovered this gem of a photo dating back to 1965 at Princes Park, when as a young Italian-Australian growing up in North Carlton, he spent many a weekend playing footy and dreaming of bigger things.
Asked about this shot, and in particular the soccer ball, Marcus recalls “Looking at that photo, I still have a vivid memory of how I felt. The funny thing is I had no sense that it was odd to have the Carlton footy jumper on whilst playing soccer! It was just about sport and belonging”.
No doubt there’s a tonne or more of similar memories amongst the Almanac community, captured in shots like this, forever.
