The Boomerang Club [Queensland Football Team]

c1910s. Eleven (11) vintage silver gelatin photographs, six in panorama format, in a string-bound album, 6.9 x 9cm to 14.1 x 19.3cm. Silvering, minor chips to edges, all laid down on album page, one with tape.

Photographs show groups of young men in bathers on the beach, in a line-up and seated in a team arrangement holding a football. Others show the men partaking in sporting day events such as sack races, wheelbarrow races and sprinting. One photograph shows a group of young men situated around a country camp, wearing white turtlenecks with a boomerang logo.

The Boomerang Club was a football club established in Queensland in the 1890s, based around the Brisbane and Toowoomba areas. The club had much success in 1912 and 1913, winning both premierships, but seems to have withdrawn from competition with the introduction of Rugby League in 1914. They resurfaced sometime in the 1920s. Ref: Trove.
