I have seen that one Billy from 1953. Great footage from a packed Junction Oval.

Wonder how many home videos are out there that have not been uploaded on you tube. There would have been some old fashion 8mm or 16mm cameras floating around in the old days that we have never seen.
The Ch0 games I am not sure how many are around that we have not seen. Might be the odd VHS, Beta or Umatic tape still around. I am sure NAA would have some. Would definitely be Ch0 news bulletins from the weekends late 60s through to early 80s. Would be the sports reports including VFA results and brief highlights.

The Frazer mentioned as best for Port was the famous Mopsy Frazer who was Port CCoach.

The 40,000 crowd was an equal  record with the 1949 GF Williamstown v Oakleigh for the VFA at the Junction Oval and was never bettered.
